UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Marks, MS, USA (Northwest MS)

Date: 05/05/74-05/08/74

Approach Direction: various directions

Departure Direction: various directions

Witness Direction: various directions

Description: There were bright lights that would approach from one direction, hover, and speed off in the opposite direction-100 times faster than any airplane could. They changed colors as well.

Another object moved over us from what seemed like several hundred yards away or closer. The lights and detail were very clear. Over the next several nights approximately 15 people gathered in my neighbors driveway to watch the spectacle. This was a long time ago and no one reported this to anybody as far as I know. I just spoke to my father about this and he remembers the details the same as I do. I was 7 years old at the time. I am going to try to find out who the other people were who were gathered there.

Color/Shape: At one point during the three night vigil, we saw several lights seemingly enter in one larger one and disappear.

Height & Speed: The speed varied greatly. They moved slow, moved fast, and moved in diffrent directions in the blink of an eye.

[Possible meteor shower?]
