Location: Lafayette, IN
Shape: Light
Duration:50 seconds
Spiraling white lighted craft or object that disappeared, no noise,..not moving at fast speed, moving east.

Upon walking my girl-friend to her vehicle around 11pm, I noticed what appeared to be an aircraft light in the eastern sky, maybe 5 to 10 thousand ft. aloft. This object was not making any type of typical aircraft engine sounds, such as jet engines, or prop engine noise. My girl friend noticed that it seemed to rotate, like a thrown football spiral, as it did this, the only light coming from the object was white, which seemed to get brighter with the phase of each time it rotated around, and then slightly dim as it spiraled. We watched this object for almost a minute head east, no other strobe lights could be seen blinking, only white light. At that point, the object's white light started to dim, and eventually went out all together, not because of it moving away I don't believe,we watched a short time longer waiting to see if it came back on, it did not. The object was totally silent, uncommon for having an airport nearby in Indianapolis, and at Purdue Univ! ersity. Someone needs to check this area or skies out at night, not the first time seeing this.
