Pilot Sighting Of Unusual Light.

Pilot Sighting The person who has reported this sighting to me wants to remain anonymous.

One night in 1977 on a flight to Chicago (ORD) and after passing abeam of Louisville,Ky., an extremely bright light appeared in the northeast. At first we thought it was an aircraft that had turned on a nose light, but soon realized that it was much too bright and was much more pure white than an aircraft light. It also appeared to be at a higher altitude than aircraft would normally fly.

We asked Indianapolis Center if they had traffic at our one o'clock position. Their reply was in the negative and also mentioned that they had no radar contact. Shortly thereafter, the light winked out.
