Location: Retrop, OK
|I was contacted this morning by a person who wanted to file a report of a sighting on 6/3/03 at about 10:35 PM just south the town of Retrop, Oklahoma (130 Miles west of Oklahoma City) (35.15N- 99.35W). The witness who is a radiology technician, was driving north on hwy. 6 and looked off to the west and saw 2 objects hovering above a field. She states that the objects were between 30 and 45 degrees above the horizon from her viewpoint. The witness stated she slowed down and rolled her window down to see the objects clearer.
Her description is that the objects were disk shaped, and had extremely bright white and red lights that flashed in sequence around the craft(s). Witness states no stars or other aircraft were seen, (This area is within the ATC area for Altus AFB) Altus AFB tower reported no air traffic in the area at that time. The objects were seen for approximately 3 minutes before vanishing, as the witness watched. Weather at the time of the sighting was reported to be good. No noise associated with the objects reported Witness tried to find a farmhouse to stop at to try to get another person to see these objects, however this was in a very desolate area and she was unable to do so. She did stop and contact 2 police officers in Elk City when she arrived in town, she states she asked if anyone else had seen the objects, the officers laughed at her, and then advised her to contact me. I have interviewed the witness and she seems very credible.
