Sighting Reports 2008

Man Sees 2 Objects in Night Sky That Exhibited Strange Behavior

Date of Sighting: April 7, 2008
Time of Sighting: 9:30 PM CDT
Date Sighting Reported: April 9, 2008
Duration of Sighting: About One Hour
Location of Sighting: Hot Springs, Arkansas (About 40 MI WSW of Little Rock)
Latitude: 34.49 Degrees North
Longitude: 93.01 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Clear Skies. Visbility 10 Miles. Winds Were From the East at 9 MPH.

Description: I saw two objects to the west of me. One was a bluish white object that appeared to be maybe 5 - 20 miles high and the other was a red object about 10 - 40 miles above it, and they seemed to be 50 - 100 miles away from me. After coming almost directly above the bluish white object, the red object starts descending towards the bluish white object, without pausing or altering it's speed. The bluish white object then appeared to ascend up towards the red object, although much slower than the red object descended. I would have dismissed the bluish white object as a plane or helicopter after seeing it move, but it seemed to be much too high for a helicopter, and seemed to be moving far too slowly to be a non-harrier airplane. After coming to the realization that these two objects were not inanimate, and were moving towards one another, my vision began to shake slightly as I strained to comprehend what I was seeing. When the red object seemed to be no more than 5 - 10 miles above the bluish white object, both objects stopped moving suddenly and quite simultaneously.

I came back outside about 30 - 50 minutes later, and the objects appeared to be in about the same place, and shortly thereafter the red object started ascending away from the bluish white object. After reaching its original altitude if not a higher one, it started moving to the east, being almost directly over me at one point, but still about 10 miles to the north of me. It was moving extremely fast, and I heard a "sonic boom" about 20 seconds behind it. When it passed above me it seemed to be at an altitude of 5 - 10 miles. With the red object much closer than it had previously been, I could tell that it had 2 red lights opposite one another, which did not flash or flicker. There was a yellow light directly in between the two red lights that was flashing on and off, every second or so. There was a second yellow light directly in front of the first, which did not flash or flicker. I couldn't see anything of the craft except for the lights, which appeared to be (based on a normal airplane frame) positioned on the wings (red lights), one on or near the underside of the nose (steady yellow light) and on the underside of the craft directly in between the wings.

Comments: The witness made a very detailed description of what he saw. The report above was shortened considerably for clarity. The witness's estimation of distances is probably not accurate. It is difficult to explain what would cause the phenomen observed. Given the length of time that the lights were observed makes it more of a mystery. Perhaps the "light show" could have been due to military exercises, but this is difficult to say without more data. Unusual aerial lights are frequently seen in the Joplin, Missouri area. Joplin is in southwest Missouri about 200 miles northwest of Hot Springs. The Joplin lights are referred to as "spook lights" and their identity remains a mystery. Perhaps this same light phenomenon is occurring in Arkansas?
