Description: I talked to both witnesses and they reported the sighting one week after it happened. They stated that they were driving north-northeast on Highway 281 just south-southwest of the Hamilton, Texas Airport. They noticed four very large orange lights in a horizontal line. Each light was about 50% the size of a full moon. The lights were at high angle, but then all blinked out and then reappeared at a lower angle. The lights then blinked out and reappeared a lower angle, but only one light reappeared. This light then gradually dimmed and disappeared. The witnesses stated that the lights were seen outside the driver's side window (northwest). The witness stopped his car and viewed the lights before they disappeared. No sound was heard. The witness got out his camera, but the lights disappeared before he could take a photo.

Comments: Several sightings of similar lights (object) were seen in this area of Texas on October 23 and again on October 25. The identity of these sightings is unexplained. Apparently the military was conducting exercises in the nearby Brownfield Operation Area on the evening of October 23. This investigation is in progress. Updates will be posted.
