Shape: Light
Duration:2-3 min
Red-orange lights over seen motionless over Lockborne AFB-one vanished and one sped out of sight.

Myself and two other musicians were on our way to the entrance of Lockborne Air Force base. We were to play a dance job at the service club. I was in the front far right looking out an open window at the many reddish orange lights over the base attached to tall structures of all kinds, when I suddenly realized I had been staring at two red-orange lights, side by side, but not attached to anything. They were completly motionless and silent. I had been fixed on these lights several seconds,but the instant I consciously knew what I was looking at, the right light vanished and the other shot off to the north and out of sight in an instant, in complete silence. As I turned my head to follow it, I realized my friend to my left was also looking at it. The driver didn't see it, and when we spoke of it, the driver joked about our seeing "flying saucers." A peculiar thought I had latter was that it took a month or more for me to admit to myself that I had seen what could be called a UFO.
