Sighting Reports 2008

Man Sees Strange Pattern of Lights in Night Sky

Date of Sighting: January 19, 2008
Time of Sighting: 8:10 PM EST
Date Sighting Reported: January 19, 2008
Duration of Sighting: Several Minutes (Exact Time Unknown)
Location of Sighting: Philippi, West Virginia (North-Central West Virginia)
Latitude: 39.152 Degrees North
Longitude: 80.04 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: Several (Exact Number Unknown)
Weather: Clear Skies. Stars Visible. (Per Witness Observation.)

Description: The witness left a voice-mail regarding his sighting. He said that for the past two nights he has noticed an unknown pattern of lights in the sky. He apparently called law enforcement about his sighting. It wasn't whether law enforcement responded or discounted his sighting. Several family members and neighbors have also witnessed the lights. (The lights were called to their attention by the witness.) Opinions of other observers varied from believing that the lights were unusual to others believing that the lights were not significant.

Comments: I have attempted to reach the witness, but have not yet succeeded. My initial impression is that the lights are likely astronomical (celestial bodies) and not significant. Any updates will be posted.
