Vincennes Airship Sightings

Vincennes Airship Sightings

Date: April - 1897

Location: Vincennes, IN

Starting in 1896, witnesses in California reported seeing large, unidentified craft in the sky, and numerous sightings surfaced in other states as the object, or objects, purportedly made its way east across the country.

That was, before the invention of the airplane and long range dirigibles.

Newspapers hyped the progress of the airship, including the Vincennes Morning Commercial, which, in April 1897, printed the accounts of a number of reputable citizens who variously claimed to have seen something resembling a sphere of golden light, a ball of fire, and a flying steamboat.
