Full Description of event/sighting: A friend and I saw some rather strange lights very high in the sky at about 11:00pm ( central time ) on 14 May 2007. We were located about 13 miles south of Drake Field ( airport at Fayetteville, AR ) just east of US 71. We were outside of my house looking at Venus (which was very bright) - at that time Venus was a little bit north of west from where we were standing. We saw a very bright flash ( duration was no more than 1 second ) from about the same direction as Venus. This was followed by quite a number of "flashes". They were 3-5 seconds apart and appeared to be moving at least as fast as a meteor. They followed a path from wnw to ese, but appeared to veer to the south when they got to the east of us.
A couple of minutes after the flashes "disappeared" to the south, they then reappeared moving from south to north ( and they did seem to reappear from the same point that they disappeared ).
A short time (maybe a minute) after the flashes disappeared to the north, they then reappeared almost due north of us, moving to the south. They made a very tight clockwise semi-circle and disappeared to the north again. There were two flashes southbound, two flashes westbound, then two flashes northbound. We watched for about another 15 minutes and didn't see anything else. The only sounds we heard when the "flashes" were occurring were an eastbound jet (there is an east-west corridor just north of my house), and a small prop plane on the south approach to Drake Field.
The second sighting (8 Jun 2007) was at the same location at about 10:00pm (central time). They were a bit north of me, moving from west to east (which is where I normally see eastbound jets). I only saw the one "path".
I was a weather officer in the USAF for 12 years so I do know what we saw was no "normal" aircraft, no meteor or comet, no space debris, etc. I also saw something "very strange" a long time ago. It was back in 1987, and I'm not sure you're interested in such old sightings.
Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
