Cigar shaped craft - similar sighting listed in same area

This happened when I was about 9 years old.

I was standing behind my dad's house in Fairmount, Ind., looking to the NW/W. I witnessed 2 "cigar" shaped objects slowly moving/hovering in the sky. It was funny because I thought that they looked like the spaceship that Marvin the Martian flew in the Bugs Bunny cartoons.

Since I was just a kid, I always dismissed this incident until I read another post about a "cigar" shaped sighting in Yorktown Ind. around the same time. Yorktown isn't very far from Fairmount (about 25 miles).

I know that is story isn't very exciting, but I thought it was interesting that it was similar to something someone else saw in the same area.

So ... you never know. Just thought that I would share.
