Moving lights

My friend ((male name deleted)) and I were on a hunting lease shortly before Operation Desert Storm. ((male name deleted)) came to get me at the stand where I was hunting just after dark in his pickup, all excited about several fast moving llights he had just seen shooting across the sky. I laughed and kidded him a little on our way back to camp.

At the camp I didn’t see what he had witnessed but shortly three lights appeared equal distance from each other perhaps a mile or more. They were stationary. Then they began to change colors and slowly fade out.

Then they appeared once again farther along in the sky but kept the same distance and spacing from each other almost as though they were connected. They did this until they disappeared from view as they moved from left to right.

I had worked in aircraft at then General Dynamics at FTW, but these were silent and in no way resembled anything I was familiar with, but felt somehow they were connect to “Desert Storm.”

Occasionally we still mention them in conversation. They began dimly as orange and slowly increased in intensity as they became visible, and likewise decreased when they slowly became invisible.

((ADDENDUM FROM SOURCE OF REPORT))

Hello Mr Davenport,

My friend, ((name deleted)) and I discussed the event although ((name deleted)) was somewhat reluctant. We're older fellows now, with name deleted)) being ((seventies) and I will soon be ((seventies)), but we arrived at a date of Jan. 1st 1990 approximately 7 PM.
Other than seeing the objects, the hunt was quite uneventful.

Very Truly Yours,
((name deleted))
