very shiny and reflective...
Laporte, Indiana - 07-03-18
I was driving my work truck heading west towards La Porte on West 400 South. As I came out of the trees I saw a reflective object about 200 feet up or so moving very slowly.
I approached the intersection of West 400 South and Long Lane. I observed and began recording at that time. I wasn't sure what I was seeing, but it was very abnormal how slow it was moving.
It was fairly large as you can see in the video and also very shiny and reflective and made no noise, It looked like a shiny egg or pebble. It moved very close to the high tension power lines .
I watched as the object moved along the power lines from west to east, then over the farm. I watched until it was out of my view. As I was driving away on West 400 South I could see it hovering above the farm in my side view mirror on my work truck.
The whole incident lasted about 4 minutes. I was nervous because I've never seen an aerial vehicle like that. I've seen military drones at the railyard near our town.
I have a quad-copter and I've been to many air shows. I wanted to follow it, but I was nervous and I was on the clock and had to get to the job site. The last I saw that it was hovering over the barn.
I found it very odd with no easy explanation as to what it could have been. I called the La Porte County airport and spoke with Diana. She informed me at that time they had no radar hits and she had not given out any permissions for agricultural drones that day.
I'm attaching the video I took. I apologize for the "f bombs." I was just very surprised at what I was seeing. I narrated the video to document what I was seeing and the location.
