Shape: Unknown
I observed 7 bright lights moving in formation above the former Turner Air Force Base, in Albany Georgia, in the spring of 1967.

I called to several other Airmen, who also observed the lights decend to a point just inside the base. They had moved in unison across the sky, in a manner no plane could duplicate.

After about 3 minutes , a blue flash of light arose at about the point the lights had disapeared from sight. A series of explosions continued on light towers around the perimeter, neat the flight line, and the entire base went dark.

The official explanation was, that a snake had crawled into a transformer, causing the outage.

I told my O.I.C. the next morning about the incident. She stated the her husband, who was a pilot, had not taken a flight in over 30 days, without one or more ufo's in attendance. He did not file any reports, due to the usual restrictions placed on Air Force Officers.
