Indiana UFOs and Earthquakes - April '08
Well I did not see any strange lights, but I did feel the earthquake. Local TV news reported on the "lights" on the 17th I think it was. Here is a report from Earthfiles.com
UFO WATCH:Strange Aerial Lights Like Texas - But Now Photographed in Indiana, Illinois, and Massachusetts
April 24, 2007 Kokomo, Indiana; Oswego, Illinois; and Granville, Massachusetts - At 4:37 AM Central on Friday, April 18, 2008, at an epicenter 38 miles northwest of Evansville, Indiana (38.450°N, 87.890°W), a magnitude 5.2 earthquake at 7.2 miles deep shook sleeping residents from Bellmont, Illinois, to St. Louis, Missouri, Des Moines, Iowa, Michigan, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Kansas and Georgia nearly 900 miles away. Indianapolis International Airport closed down for an hour while the control tower was evacuated. This was the first strong earthquake in the Midwest since 1968. Two days before on April 16, 2008, in Kokomo, Indiana, northeast of the epicenter, residents between 10:25 and 10:40 PM Central, flooded the 911 emergency center with 146 phone call reports about bright lights in the sky and a loud explosion or boom that violently rattled houses and windows. Authorities were quick to say it was “a midair mistake Wednesday night” when at least two F-16 jets in routine training exercises with the Indiana Air National Guard went too fast at 10,000 feet and caused a sonic boom on the ground.But MUFON received a series of alleged UFO sightings on the night of April 16, 2008, from Kokomo residents Here is one example:“At approximately 10:30 PM on the night of April 16, I was in the living room watching TV and my husband had gone to bed. There was a huge boom that rattled the front window. My husband asked what the noise was and I went to the front door to see. Off to the west there appeared a large object with lights all the way across it. It reminded me of a hair barrette with lights. It seemed to be hovering, yet the lights appeared to turn. My husband came out to stand behind me just in time to see the lights reappear from right to left until 5 lights were showing. Then it did it for a second time before it disappeared. The lights we saw with the naked eye were yellowish-orange in color.“If you click on http://www.wwki.com/, click on the article about the Boom and the bright lights. You will see pictures that someone submitted.The fourth picture down is exactly what I saw when I first looked out. This was no meteor orF-16. They don't hover. We could not take our eyes off of it and my husband, who is a Viet Nam veteran and a retired deputy sheriff, said he had never seen anything like it. We are both certain that what we saw was unidentifiable. The next morning, when I went out to get the newspaper at a little after 5 AM, I looked off into the west in the same vicinity. There, in front of the moon was a huge V-shaped dark cloud that reminded me of a flower vase with a lot of much smaller jet trails near it.” Source: MUFON. The next day, WWKI Radio 100.5 in Kokomo, Indiana, posted on its website under the headline:“Big boom! Lights in the sky?Photos courtesy of Dustin Cronkhite, taken between 10 to 11 PM, on April 16, 2008. Take a look at these pictures ... after you do, take the poll and let us know what YOU think they are?”Earthfiles cropped the photos of multiple colored, shape-changing aerial objects to give largest images without too much pixel distortion; thus, variable image sizes...
