Location: Greenville, MS
|Sighting of white lights in evening sky west of Greenville MS circa 1951.
Observation from 612 Starling Street at late dusk or early night, approximately due west or WSW. Their elevations were approximately 30-40 degrees above the horizon. I do not recall clouds in the vicinity. One of the five objects was larger than the rest. I recall that the objects appeared white and having an intensity that you could continuously observe without having to shift your gaze. They did not appear shiny like looking directly into the beam of a flashlight, automobile headlight or an aircraft landing light. The diameter of each of these objects was maybe 2-3 degrees of arch and and entire formation traversed not more than 15 degrees. They appeared and disappeared several times over approximately five minutes. Appearance and disappearance were much longer cycles than pulsation.
My family and I learned later that several calls to the local police and the newspaper were made concerning this event.
