March 2nd 2008 : South Of Rolla, Missouri

South Of Rolla, Missouri Orange Lights

Date: March 2, 2008
Time: Just before 8:00 p.m.

I live a couple of miles south of Rolla Missouri. On March 2, just before 8:00pm, I also saw the orange lights in question. I called my brother (who lives next door) and he and his wife both came out and watched the lights with me for about ten minutes and they stopped appearing shortly after 8:00pm. The lights appeared in a SE-SSE direction, which correlates with the sighting near Salem.

Each light would glow for about four seconds at a time, then disappear for a few minutes, before lighting up in a different location. The exception seemed to be the 'double light' which looked like two of the lights in close proximity - the distance between the two did not seem to change and they lit up at exactly the same time and the pair always lit up in the same location. There may have been as many as six objects, but we only saw a maximum of three at once.

I have also seen these lights in the same area a couple of times last fall, once with my brother. At first, I thought it was the burner of a hot-air balloon, but I couldn't imagine anyone flying one at night. Sunday night was the first time I have seen more than one light at a time. It was very windy, with a storm front moving in, and I knew nobody would be flying balloons in that kind of weather. This was my third sighting of these lights, and by far the most extensive. My brother has seen them with me twice now, and his wife reported seeing them by herself before.

This is the first time I've heard of anyone else reporting these lights, it's good to know there are other witnesses. Now I am even more curious about them. If I can answer any questions for you, please let me know.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
