A Coatesville, IN, witness reported watching four dark colored, triangle-shaped, objects flying “roughly 100 feet above the tree top level,” about 12:30 a.m. on April 11, 2013, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The former military service observer was in a bedroom with an open window when the sound of a “jet engine sound” was first heard.
“I looked out of my window and observed a dark craft of triangular shape flying roughly 100 feet above tree top level, moving steadily along a southwest heading,” the witness stated. “It had a red signal light at the center of its ventral surface and white running lights on all three points.”
The witness assumed the object was an aircraft in distress and ran outside for a better look.
“I live along a residential lake of respectable size with houses close together. While looking for the craft, I saw three more craft of the exact same configuration at approximately the same altitude (100 feet above tree top) and all of them were following the same southwest heading.”
One of the objects moved over the witnesses’ home.
“One passed over my house and I clearly saw a dark hull. It was a solid craft.”
The witness lost sight of the four objects as they moved out of his line of sight.
