Location: Terre Haute, IN
Shape: Chevron
Duration: 7 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Succession of sightings; chevron was 5 times higher than it's lower counterpart, both of them big and silently fast.

Early in the morning, two hours before sunrise, I had the first of two significant sightings of something silent and unknown grand proportions.

At 5:07 am, off to my left from the north appear 5 lite-white lights in a chevron or half oval shape. At arms length about 2 inches wide move due south, from about 45 degrees above horizon to around the same angle south. It crossed roughly 90 degrees of space in at most 7 seconds, before going out of view.

I know this because of unsuccessfully trying to videotape it upon audio playback of my description. I also realize that estimating altitude is unlikely to be very accurate, when you get past a few hundred feet because of the given unknown size involved-even with tall trees for a background. However because I have a further reference to a similar object much closer at around 200 feet, using the length of my side yard as a close comparison. the first sighting would be close to 1000 feet because it was five times smaller in relative size. Weather conditions: clear but humidity was 90% and temperature was seasonly cold at 28 degrees but without much wind. the subsequent encounter was much closer,I believe to be the same type of craft; happened at 5:12, just 5 minutes later-of which I will file in a separate follow up report.
