We were young and living off 241, within .5 miles of cataract lake as the crow flies. My mom and 4 kids, lived with her boyfriend Paul Sauders of 10 plus years. Paul owned the Texaco station located between Qnot and Poland Indiana. We had full service station, diner, trash routes and several rental properties. Mom did all book keeping for Pauls businesses. We lived within 70-100 ft of the Texaco station on hill. I remember the leaves were still on trees and we didn't need coats to take trash outside that night. We had a dumpster on right side of station which was directly across from our side door off kitchen and screened in porch. Lisa, my older sister had one side of can and i other. We had little concrete sidewalk we walked down dragging this can about midway. I don't recall which of us looked up first but while holding can we both stopped..we exchanged words like what's that..I remember standing there. The object was hugh and 3d almost. Totally black on bottom and top, rectangular. The sides all around were soft almost memerizing...I never felt fear just awe...at that moment Lisa dropped her half of the trash can, twisting my wrist, she turned and ran inside yelling ufo..or something like that.. I don't recall looking back up again, but did put down my half ran into the screened I porch area and mom and Paul were coming out..when I turned and went bad out the porch door onto sidewalk...it was gone. It was seconds and I was gone.. No sound, no wind, no noise while it was there..just darker than the night sky, almost like a void with very distinct sides with light show I will never forget...I never heard it leave..never felt the wind like you would from a car driving by that close..it was so close you felt like you could touch it. The garage was about 60' long, the object hoovered about 2 foot from touching the garages flat top roof. It "hoovered" starting about 20-30 ft over the roof but rest of its body was 3-4 times longer. The night of garage was 10 ft ceiling and had partial mezzanine we had for part storage..the garage back was buttes up to hillside that was 4-8 ft high. The object looked like u could step on hillside and reach up and touch it. It is feeling and site I will never forget..mom and Paul mentioned that same night there were other spottings around lake area and even it was in newpaper. Parents and older folks talked about these other siting and jets went over flying low more than I remember anywhere or more frequently than any place i have lived since.
