I wonder now, and thank all of you for giving different perspectives, if Russia, being so very close, could have been the sender. Yet, by pondering this idea, I am also confused as to why they would not have overwhelmed all of us by now through this technology.
I can tell you with certainty that these did not play as ground lights such as search lights. These I’ve seen on too many occassions under various weather conditions and from many perspectives.
Since the lights never seem obstructed from view when traveling away at speeds that I still find impossible to comprehend, I would also have to say they could not have been from a jet either which would have made sound as well.
From a distant perspective, these lights would suddenly come forward and be huge, then suddenly go right, then down, left, forward, backward, then change yet to another direction and the speeds varied as well yet faster than anything I had ever seen before. I could not even begin to guess at the speed they traveled except this way, from the closest point to us and when they would suddenly dart backwards would have been equivalent to a jet from that position to the next flying at 30 times their normal speed.
I also remember my father say ‘that’s incredible’ ‘can you believe that?’ etc. and I also remember saying to him ‘shouldn’t we tell someone’ and his reply ‘who would you tell that would believe you’. I wonder if, because of the nature of his work there if it was better that he did not make such a weird report…OR on the other hand, if this was also something he already knew about….? If either of these was true, perhaps that’s why he didn’t say much. On the hand, maybe he did report or ask about it and I never knew that either.
I wish he had been a shepherd….all of us would have been a lot happier….and probably a lot safer.
