Duration:5-10 seconds
Ultra bright white light with acceleration twice that of a stealth bomber, yet with an effortless smooth glide moving through the night

1:30 am Madison,IN I witnessed an ultra bright light. The whitest light I’ve ever seen, traveling toward the northwest sky. I got a very good 5 second look at it, but a tree interfered with my view as it moved northwest toward Indianapolis. Its acceleration was an effortless smooth glide. No sound. Impossible to judge, I would describe its altitude well below commercial air traffic. Its acceleration as twice the speed of a stealth bomber. Fast but not shooting star fast.

I’m on the Ohio River between Louisville and Cincinnati. And I would speculate this object would have reached Indianapolis in 5 seconds, then Chicago 5 seconds later. This too is only speculation, but it did seem to be in the form of a disc. Interestingly, 10 seconds or so after the object disappeared, I witnessed a bright flash of light to the right (East) of where the object was headed. The flash was in the form of a circle. It was unusual in that as an every night sky watcher I’ve never seen anything of comparison.

I submit this report as my due diligence to the UFO community. I have researched this subject extensively through the in-depth study of thousands of case files. I am beyond knowledgeable in the history of the UFO phenomenon. But I have never seen anything that even remotely resembles a UFO in my 41 years of existence. I would like to continue my research and study of this phenomenon. Unfortunately, I don’t want to publicize this sighting by reporting it anywhere else, having my name attached to it. However, I did see it, and it was unlike anything I have ever seen before. GG
