Dear Diana:

This is almost certainly the Wurtsmith Air Force Base events of
30 OCT 1975 starting around 2210 hrs (10:10 PM).

"Night-lights" and odd silent "copters" were all over this SAC
base. Speeds estimated up to 1200 MPH! ( quite odd )

One unidentified unlighted 'copter' hovered over the weapons
storage area. As a SAC base, home base for the 40th Air Division
and the 379th Bomb Wing, you may imagine what sort of weapons
were stored there.

1 UFO departed to the West, while another went North. There were
numberous witnesses to these events.

Much more detail can be found in the following sources:

1) The UFO COVERUP (formerly titled Clear Intent) is available
in many libraries under either title. Authors: Lawrence Fawcett
& Barry J. Greenwood. My copy is Prentice Hall, 1984 ISBN
0-13-137712-4 Page 41.

2) CASEBOOK of a UFO INVESTIGATOR by Raymond Fowler, Prentice
Hall, 1981 ( paperback page 189. )

3) CUFOS: IUR journal, Volume 3 number 4.

Source #1 gives a lot of detail, including one witness who saw a
saucer shaped craft. This happened three nights after sightings
at Loring AFB in Maine.

Wurtsmith AFB is at about 83:23W - 44:28N, which is three miles
Northwest of Oscoda, MI.

Best wishes
