Sighting Report
Occurred : 9/2/1999 03:30 (Entered as : 09/01/99 03:30)
Reported: 9/7/1999 01:21
Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: New Orleans, LA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 hours
Light streaked across sky ... power failure/brownout followed.

A light streaked across the sky from West to East and at the same time power failed in a large part of New Orleans. After the power failure, a "brown-out" condition existed for approximately two hours. I called the local power provider, Entergy, and the stated that they had "numerous" reports of outages at the same time (3:30AM). This was the same night as the West Coast event (objects in the sky, alleged booster reentry) featured live on the Art Bell Pgm.

((NUFORC Note: Date corrected, at request of witness. The alleged brown-outs occurred on the morning of Thursday, 02SE99, measured in local time for New Orleans.))
