Former law enforcement officer reported slender black cigar-shaped object with 7 lights.

Observer had spotted an unknown object. Witness was a retired Marion County and State Capitol Police officer, and at the time of the sighting, an Uber driver. Report as follows. Beach Grove/Indianapolis, retired police officer was sitting at the corner of Thompson Road and Emerson Avenue in the old Kmart parking lot. He was in his car facing West when he looked up and saw a black cigar-shaped craft with 7 round white lights on the trailing edge of the object, which was silent. He estimated the craft was 1800-2000 feet high, similar to low flying helicopters. From witness's vantage point inside his vehicle, he estimated the object to be around 1/2 mile (2640 feet) away. When looking at it with his arm outstretched, eye to thumbtip of around 25-30 inches, he noted it was 45 degree angle up and about the size of 3-4 of his thumbnails which is approximately 3-3-1/2 inches. This indicates a large craft estimated to be about 300 feet wide which would make the 7 li! ghts on trailing edge about 15 feet across. Object moved from NE to SW and disappeared out of sight as he drove off to pick up a customer. He stated he had seen this exact same craft in August 2021 about 8-10 miles West of this location near his home.
