Reported: 7/25/2009 7:58:08 PM 19:58
Posted: 8/5/2009
Location: Indianapolis, IN
Shape: Disk
Duration:3 to 4 minutes
At 10:00 p.m. EST on 7-25-09, 20 to 30 yellowish disks were observed travelling accross the northern sky near Indianapolis.

At approximatley 10:00 p.m. EST on 7-25-09, I was in the driveway of my home in Lawrence, Indiana, a small town in the northeast section of Marion County (about 10 miles northeast of downtown Indianapolis. A female neighbor accross the street yelled at me, pointing at the northern sky and stated "What is that?" I immediately looked up and saw 20 to 30 bright yellowish disk-shaped objects, each with an illuminated vertical red center, flying accross the sky with no detectable sound. They were moving west to east about 40 degrees off the horizon at what appeared to be a high rate of speed. They were in a straight formation, although about 30 seconds into this encounter 2 or 3 seemed to "break off" from the formation and head south towards me for a few seconds, then quickly joined the others in their easterly trek.

While I was watching this, the female neighbor's husband also came out of his house and joined his wife and I, who were watching this spectacle from the street. After another minute or so, the objects all disappeared into the eastern sky.

I am a 56 year old college-educated male, who spent over 20 years in law enforcement in several different positions. I am currently an in-town truck driver, and I do not use illicit drugs or cosume alcohol.

I can offer no logical explanation as to what these objects were that my neighbors and I saw. I hope to find out something about this when I watch the evening news at 11:00 p.m. tonight. Finally, if someone would have told me I would be making a report to a UFO center, I would have laughed at them. I occasionally listen to "Coast to Coast" on the radio and always regarded UFO reports as just some type of goofy entertainment. Now I'm not so sure!At 10
