Location: Afghanistan (Forward Operating Base),
Duration:under 10 sec
|V shape formation over Afhganistan
While I was on guard duty, from ((deleted)) to ((deleted)) hrs., I looked up to the northern mountains at my 2:00 o'clock I saw a string of lights moving from east to west; it stopped at my 12:00 o'clock. I ran out of the tower with my NVG (night vision goggles). As I got to the outside of the tower the object was gone.
I stared in the area and noticed that the object was coming out of a left bank turn heading towards me. The mountains are about 2 miles away, and it floated over our Forward Observation Base (F.O.B.) in Afghanistan.
It stopped over our base and it spun around pointing north again it drifted west over a small village. Just past the village, it stopped then it just shot over the northern mountains in a split second.
The object was 5 large lights in a V shape formation. I could not see the object, due to the cloud cover, but you can tell that it was one solid object with 5 lights. It was also very large as it hovered over the base, I can see that it was larger then the base!
In a war zone no military air craft are to fly with lights on, and I know all of our aircrafts. Also, as the U.F.O was hovering over the base it was a windy night with gust of 30 miles. It had stopped and it started again as it passed.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and he sounded to us to be quite sober-minded, and quite serious about the sighting. He reported that he thought the altitude of the tops of the mountains was about 2,000 feet. Also, he estimated that the object appeared to be, from the vantage point of the witness, to be larger than a clenched fist, at arm's length, appears to be. PD))
