The sighting

Three nights in a row they came, silent, red, and yellow balls of light, twelve in total flying in a V formation from East to west across the night sky. Each ball maintained station with it’s neighbour almost as if they were all connected in some way. The first reports came in to the county Sheriffs office and were treated with patient, but dismissive assurances that the reports would be looked into. By the second night the reports had doubled, tripled. It seemed like the whole town was out watching the light show, maybe the whole state.

The highway patrol car send to investigate the lights lost radio contact at around 9pm, just as the lights were reported passing over Crow Hill, and contact wasn’t re-established for two hours. The deputy operating the vehicle couldn’t account for the loss of communication, or the loss of two hours of his life. Phone calls to the local airforce base elicited no further news. By the third night the local press were watching, news crews, photographers, the images buzzing round the globe on the internet.

Then nothing, another UFO mystery for the conspiracy bloggers and x-files addicts. Will we ever know the truth?
