Location: St. George Island, AK
|Ball of light streaking upwards
While sitting at a bonfire on the beach myself and 2 others seen a red ball of light rise from the horizon high into the sky and drop about 3 minutes apart, it was very fast and left a trail of light which rules out distress flares, the location of the lights was south southwest of zapadni bay a distance I estimate of 10 to 15 miles, the skies were clear and calm.
((NUFORC Note: NUFORC has received no other reports. We cannot find St. George Island, AK, on our map, but wonder if the sighting might have been caused by a launch of a missile from the Kodiak launch facility. PD))
