|Lights with 'projectiles' west of Chillicothe, Ohio.
At around 10:30 yesterday evening I observed odd lights low in the sky west of Chillicothe Ohio. I first noticed a slowly flashing while light, dimmer than the surrounding stars. The flash was at a much slower pace than a typical aircraft warning light, perhaps three seconds between flashes. After a few minutes, two more of these slow flashers appeared. The sky was clear, so it shouldn't be assumed that they arrived under cloud cover.
They began to move south at a slow rate of speed. Suddenly, the top-most light emitted a bright red 'projectile' of some sort that sped out in front of it, growing dimmer as it went until is seemed to extinguish. The other two light began to emit these projectiles, one every 20 seconds or so.
After roughly 15 minutes, the lights simply went out, not far from where the event began. I waited for another 15 minutes, but the lights did not return. I've witnessed similar lights on two occasions in the past two weeks. The events last no longer than 15 minutes and I've yet to see the lights entering or exiting the area where the lights are firing the red projectiles.
Could someone contact Wright Patterson AFB to see if this might be a training exercise? I couldn't find a number for them that would allow me to speak to someone who could clarify. The red lights traveled in a straight path out from the lights, so it didn't seem like any flares that I've seen before.
