Location: West Lafayette, IN
Shape: Oval
Duration: 20 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
2000 mph metalic oval with con trail in day time sky over Indiana.

On Monday 12/20/04 at aproximately 4 PM , I was outside in the parking lot looking at all the little puffy clouds dotting the sky.

Noticed a fast moving object to the west. Craft was traveling east. I estimate it was going 2000mph. It left a long prominent single con trail. Appeared gold metalic with the full sun reflecting off it. It was long oval shaped and solid.

I estimate its alltitude at about 20,000 feet. I followed it across the sky as it moved in a straight line. Observed the "ufo" for about 15 seconds or so. It never re appeared from behind a small cloud to the north east. Could have been a scram jet??? It did NOT have wings.

Thats my story and Im sticking to it.
