|Yellow lights seen above the Kokomo Indiana sky
My son and I were driving home, going south on US 31. He was looking to the west and saw a very bright light in the sky that was still in the sky. It looked almost like a very bright star and appeared to be yellow. He then told me that the light just faded out like a watch tower light. I then turned west on Center Road. After I went about a mile down the road my son saw the light again. It was straight ahead, in the distance in the southwest sky. Then there appeared another light in a line next to it. The lights did not appear to be moving in the sky - just standing still. After about 3 to 5 seconds they both faded away. About 2 seconds later they both appeared in the northwest sky. Then after another 5 seconds they faded away. We were still driving west on Center Road, just past the Dixon Road intersection. About 10 seconds later just one light appeared in the northwest sky. It did the same thing, appeared still in the sky and then faded out. We then continued home and ran into the house to get our camcorder. Right when we walked out the door a bright light zoomed directly overhead at an extremely fast speed. We stayed outside about another 15 minutes but were unable to find the lights again. I did notice a flash of what appeared to be heat lightening, but there were no clouds in the sky. The lightening didn't look like normal heat lightening but appeared to be in a band going across the sky. It was very faint as it happened and only happened once while we were outside.
