My friend in N. Las Vegas Nevada has just called me (9:26pm PDT on Saturday October 4, 2008, I am also PDT).

((NUFORC Note: Probably advertising lights. PD))

On the phone with him, he is witnessing a total of 12 lights in the Northern sky that are in groups of 4, dancing around in circles, then they meet (become one)—and the then solitary light moves to a different location in the sky and repeats the process. Their destination points alter around 15 to 20 degrees. They can be seen through the clouds (the temperature is 60.9° with the threat of rain).

He said he was watching a movie about a tornado in New York and preparing a late dinner when, ironically--the wind suddenly picked up which alerted him to look outside. He said he noticed that the wind was blowing so hard that the tops of the trees were almost touching the ground—that is when he said he saw the orbs and called me: Ok, he’s going out onto his balcony, he said he sees an Air Force jet plane moving at high speed that just disappeared at the point in the clouds where one set of the lights came together.

He says that he can definitely tell the obvious difference between the plane and the orbs because of the landing/strobe lights on the bottom of the jet—the orbs do not have such lights. Plus the jet has an obvious light pattern as opposed to a solitary point of light like the orbs. He continues to watch until. . .

9:45pm—Ok, now there are only 4 lights left. . .

10:27pm—all the lights are now gone. . .

We are finally able to discuss this sighting and have come to the conclusion of the possibility that the lights might be something sent up by the Air Force to seed the clouds. . .?
