|Midnight Sighting over Black River Refuge
Was travelling late on 08/28/02. At midnight I seen a vary bright star to the west as i turned on Arkansas State Route 90 going to Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. The sky was cloudless ful of stars, and it was hot out that evening about 85 F. As I was driving south the star I noticed got larger and brighter. I pulled over because it seemed to be following me, but kept going. Then it droppedin altitude over the black river refude area. Then 3-4 smaller red lights came out from it! I was damned scared, i got the hell ou of there becaus this was no airplane. I got into delaplaine, ar an saw another truck so i pulled over but the driver was asleep, the truck eas runing lights on but he was asleep very strange. by this time I have seen noone else on Arkanasas State Route 90 comming from Walnut Ridge or behind me. The bright star was following me and there was a red light flying to the east of me, the redlight pulsed it must have traveled aboput 50 ft above ground.I went to O'Keene and saw nobody there so I floored it by then coming to Walnut Ridge. Got inot town and the objects were gone. I am a retired Air Force Officer (Lt Colonel), Korean and Veitnam Confliect Veteran, I am not crazy or deranged but have been a skeptic in light of my experiences in USAF, now do not know what to believe. I have seen and flown in more than my fairshare of aircraft, these were not earthly origin aricraft, they were to adavcned to do the maneuavers I saw, This whole chase an observation period lasted 45 minutes. My radio did not work because all I got was static noise, stattio after station. All AM and FM were jammedwhile i obsevred the object.
