UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Navarre, Fl (Santa Rosa County) Lights - Flares !

Date: November 7, 2005
Time: Approx: 7:00 p.m.

Message: I was reading your report on strange lights in Navarre, Fl (Santa Rosa County) on 7 November 2005.

See here and here on the UFOINFO site.]

I also saw the lights that night on my way home from work at Eglin AFB, FL. I was talking on my cell phone and commented to the person I was talking to that there was an aircraft putting out flares over the Air Force ranges north of the road. Like your other witness I did not see any colors like those in the video clips. They just looked like normal flares coming from the area that AC-130 gunships orbit while firing into the range. They don't do it often but I have seen flares in that area before.

I am certain that they were aircraft self defense flares. I can't explain the colors in the videos but if I had to guess I would say that the aircraft was dropping what we call a "cocktail" of flares. That means different kinds of flares put out at the same time to defeat a wide range of heat seeking threats. Each flare covers a different part of the spectrum and in some cameras may appear to be different colors.

Hope that helps.

I would like to thank the witness for the information, this is one of a few reports saying what folks saw were flares.
