National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 6/1/1975 (Entered as : 1975)
Reported: 3/27/2002 1:36:00 PM 13:36
Posted: 4/8/2002
Location: Clovis (Cannon AFB), NM
Shape: Light
Duration: 2-3 days
I was stationed at Cannon AFB, NM in the 1970's. There was a period of approximately one week in which lights appeared over the base for several evenings. At one point the base was on alert and the flight line was shut down. You have a report from another person in your files who has reported this sighting. The lights were photographed from high buildings in Clovis and appeared on the front page of the Clovis news paper. Being assigned to the flight line in support of F-111s several of my people reported near encounters with the lights (ufos and were visably shaken by the experience. There was also the experience at Holloman AFB in 1967 when aircraft were launched to intercept lights over Alamogordo, NM. The official report was that the lights were aircraft dropping flares. This is a bunch of crap as Lincoln National Forest was on high fire danger at the time. Having talked with at least one pilot who confirmed that they tried to chase the (UFOS) but never got close, I know that a lot of people in the USAF have had their experiences. Some will talk and some won't. These are but 2 of the numerous sightings I have witnessed.
