Strange lights appeared in the sky this weekend and more and more Tri-Staters are asking- what were they? Kimlee McCraw sent in a picture to 14 News. This is what she says she saw outside of her Princeton, Indiana home Thanksgiving night. McCraw says she’s a skeptic of UFO’s, but says she definitely saw something right out of a movie. She grabbed her camera and got them on tape.”So, these are like the first ones I took,” McCraw said.McCraw is eager to show anyone the pictures she took Thanksgiving night in hopes someone could explain just what she saw in the sky over her home in Princeton.”They just stayed in that four, all of them, and they moved across the sky,” McCraw said.The objects immediately caught McCraw’s attention while her family was outside Thanksgiving night. She even pointed them out to a neighbor who stopped by.”And I was like, ‘what is that?’ And she kind of turned and came back and said, ‘that’s an airplane.’ I said, ‘that is not an airplane,'” McCraw recounted.
McCraw says it was just before 7:00 p.m. when she started seeing the objects rise from the horizon. She says they didn’t make a sound. All glowed and changed colors, all were about the same size, and all appeared to just to float up in the air.”And they all took the same path and then sometimes there would be two, sometimes four.”In all, she says she and her family saw 20 or 30 of them in a period of 10 minutes.They weren’t the only ones to see strange objects in the sky recently. Some in Henderson, and even Illinois, posted on social media sites, that they saw objects, too.We took the video to Francis Ridge, a coordinator for the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena who has experience investigating these strange sights.”The brightness, speed, path, the color, the way they moved without bobbing up and down like this would strongly suggest these jack-o-lantern type balloons,” Ridge said.Ridge says he believes they look like a Japanese lantern and says it was definitely not a meteor shower.
