Indiana Residents Report UFO "Scanning the Landscape" With Sonar

Indiana Residents Report UFO “Scanning the Landscape” With Sonar


On March 27th three Elkhart, Indiana locals witnessed an object moving through the sky while emitting a strange pulsating noise.

The witnesses heard the bizarre sound around 10:30 pm and described the night as very quiet, with no blowing wind to obscure their ability to hear the objects “sonar” sounds.

“It traveled in a northeast direction,” they told the MUFON Reporting Center. “After I heard it get about a mile or two away I heard the beeping speed up. It was now beeping on perfect half increments. Same sound and same pitch though. This only lasted for about a minute or two and then the sound went away completely. It was definitely an object in motion.”


Oddly enough, later in the evening a siren went off in Elkhart, which the witnesses described as abnormal.

“The tornado sirens are tested every Saturday at noon. This happened late at night on a Wednesday. We are used to the tornado sirens in Elkhart and everyone knows their sound. But this is not the sound I heard. This was something totally different.”

Another witness has come out and claims to have spotted the same pulsating craft ten miles west of Elkhart in Mishawaka, emitting the same beeping sound.

Unfortunately no photos have yet to be taken. At least you’ll hear it before it takes you.

Have you seen anything strange in the skies lately? Or maybe, I should ask of you’ve heard anything strange in the skies. What do you think the witnesses saw? We want to know! Tweet us your thoughts @WhoForted, message us on Facebook, or leave a comment below!

    After hearing this exact homing beacon/sonar sound described I came to the internet to search the sound I heard at 4:04 am this morning 10/21/13. It could be heard in the distance, then another sound as it passed over my house, then another in the distance again. It was crystal clear and had a distinct sonar bleep beep, whatever you call it. I froze with a bit of fear and my animals ran through the house to hide. Has anyone ever determined what these sounds might be??

      I heard this sound a few nights ago around 2am. II thought it may be nearby factories at first…or even train breaks…but it wasn’t – after 20 years I know them. I tried to dimiss it but I couldn’t let it go. I. I did a google search and this came up. I know it doesn’t help answer the question but I wanted to document this some where. Today is December 20…and the sound was either Monday or Tuesday night.
