WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Red, blue and green flashes lit up the West Lafayette sky for hours overnight, and it had many people across Tippecanoe County wondering what was going on.
One viewer even called WLFI Tuesday morning asking if aliens had invaded the town.
Not to worry, viewer. Crews were just testing Ross-Ade Stadium's new ribbon video board.
The ribbon board will be ready for the 2019 Purdue Football season. The 10-foot high and 375 foot wide board is being added to the north end of the stadium.
Purdue's first home game is Sept. 7 against Vanderbilt.

Looks like 3:30 am is the best time to test Ross-Ade’s new toy.
