Form: 97 Report
Along with many residents of the Corydon area, Deputy Sheriff Steve
Harnrn has seen the strange lights several times. This is one of the
best encounters to date as reported originally in the CORYDON DEMOCRAT,
June 10th, 1987.
The incident occurred during the week of May 19-23, 1987, exact date
His latest encounter, three weeks ago at about 2:38 AM, was his closest.
"I came over a hill in Central Barren on rny way back towards Corydon,
and the headlights of my truck hit it. I have halogen headlights and
when they are on high beam, they're extremely bright.
"I came over the hill, and there it was, close to the ground, maybe
within a hundred feet of the roadway." He said the object was about
one-half mile in front of him at the time.
"It's shaped like a boomerang and it's huge". After his first look at
it, the object disappeared, but he saw it again about two minutes
later. "When I first hit it with the headlights, the orange lites were
the only ones visible. When it reappeared, it was pretty well straight
up from where I first saw it, but it was way high." The lights had gone
to blue, he added.
