Location: Franklin, IN
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
Triangle craft hovering 5 minutes, no sound, lights, very dark black

Coming home from work on rural roads, saw Triangle shape with 3 lights, 1 on each point, and one in middle, hovering over Union Elementary School location in Union Township. Stopped car and got out to observe. Was approx. 1500 feet in air, very clearly triangle shaped and absolutely no sound noted. The shape itself appeared to be deep black, darker than the night sky, almost seemed to absorb any light, and the lights did not appear to illuminate anything under it. This is in restricted military airspace for Camp Atterbury, which is located approx. 20 miles south. I observed carefully until the craft slowly moved off to the northwest. My mother had also had a sighting over our house approx. 3 miles southeast of this location on 11/8/04 of the same type of object. She notes that during her observation, the craft also had no sound and was very low to the ground. She had reported her observation to Art Bell by e-mail and still retains a copy of that e-mail.
