Duration:30 minutes
6 circular objects seen over Ft. Smith @ 22:30 on April 26, 2005. Lights rotated in circular pattern, with 1 center light. No sound.

3 circular Objects were seen 5 miles east of Mulberry, AR. over the Arkansas River going west @ 22:15pm having no sound. At the I-540 bridge which connects Crawford & Sebastian counties, my sister saw 6 circular objects, they split into pairs, 2 went west 2 went north, 2 went south. When she got to work, one was just to the south-east of her & hovering somewhere near the airport.

The lights blinked in a clockwise motion, then went out except for one in the center, that looked like a star, but she could still make out a shape,because they only appeared to be about 2000 ft. high. Then suddenly a national guard jet took off from the airport, and search lights came on around the airport. & the lights disappeared.

((NUFORC Note: Given the description of the objects, and the duration of the event, we suspect that the lights may have been part of an advertising light complex. PD))
