Indiana UFO was 'few hundred feet' away

An Indiana witness traveling along State Route 67 between Oaklandon and McCordsville reported watching a silent, low flying UFO that was only a few hundred feet away about 10:30 p.m. on March 26, 2014, according to testimony in Case 54981 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness had just left a restaurant and was headed east-northeast on Highway 67 when the object was first seen.

"The road curves north for a brief moment, and I noticed three really bright lights in a triangular pattern to my northeast," the witness stated. "I thought, 'It's just a plane, but that's really low.'"

The witness moved closer to the object as the road went into a bend toward the northeast.

"I was able to see several more, smaller lights (but not of any color, and no red or green light signaling any sort of wing) around the three large lights, which I could then tell were pulsating. I couldn't make out any sort of lines that would give off the shape of the object."

The witness stopped at a red light between Oaklandon and McCordsville, turned off both his heater and radio, and rolled his window down to listen for sound.

"By this point, the object was slightly behind and to the left of me. It couldn't have been more than a few hundred feet away from me, but it was absolutely silent. I know planes do not hover, and I know helicopters are audible from the distance I was from this object."

We recently covered a low flying triangle UFO in Indiana earlier this month in Jamestown, covered as Indiana witness describes low flying triangle UFO. Jamestown is about 50 miles directly west of McCordsville.

No images or videos were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on March 27, 2014. Indiana MUFON is investigating. McCordsville is a town in Vernon Township, Hancock County, IN, population 4,797. Indiana has a current UFO Alert Rating of 5 with a low number of recent reports nationally. Indiana had 6 UFO reports in February 2014 - the 21st highest reporting state - while California had 59 reports - the highest reporting state in the nation.
