UFO Over Arkansas: New Sighting Similar To Phoenix Lights?
By Michael Amsterdam

With the ten year anniversary of 'The Phoenix Lights'
approaching in March and the still unexplained UFO that was
spotted over Chicago's O'Hare airport it seems as if the buzz
about unexplained objects witnessed flying over space is again
reaching mainstream sources.

The Chicago Tribune reported earlier that the story about the
UFO that was witnessed by at least a dozen people over the
airport was their most viewed online story of the month.  There
is still no credible explanation as to what the witnesses viewed
over the airport.


Now a retired Air Force pilot is reporting that he spotted and
photographed what he believes is a UFO over his home in
Arkansas.  According to an online report from World Net Daily
the retired Colonel first believed that the lights were that of
an aircraft.  But after observing he decided otherwise.

"I believe these lights were not of this world, and I feel a
duty and responsibility to come forward," Col. Brian Fields told
WND.Com. "I have no idea what they were."

The article notes that just like with the witnesses said with
the Phoenix Lights, he believed that the lights were not
military flares as they did not descend.  "I'm certain it wasn't
an aircraft [from Earth]," said Fields, who also ruled out the
possibility of flares, saying they didn't descend like flares
typically do. "It's not anything I ever had any experience with
. ... They were some kind of energy or something."

Many skeptics are convinced that the 'Phoenix Lights' shown in
videos are indeed flares, but like Col. Fields, those witnesses
claimed that the lights did not decend.


The report from WND's Joe Kovacs notes that the event in
Arkansas lasted an hour and 15 minutes.  With the Phoenix
lights, the reports said those particular lasted between fifteen
and thirty minutes but there were more events that evening than
just the highly publicized orbs that have been widely shown and
scrutinized and the subject of various television programs.

Several witnesses claim they witnessed a craft flying above
several Arizona cities as the 'craft' moved from northern
Arizona south to Tucson and then back through Phoenix.  There
were numerous witnesses of both the orbs and the 'craft.'

If anyone else spotted the orbs in Arkansas they have yet to
come forward.  "I just can't imagine other people didn't see
it," Fields said, noting they appeared at times like a yo-yo at
5 to 10 degrees above the horizon.


"At first I thought they were landing lights from an aircraft,"
Fields said of the Arkansas sighting.

"As I continued to observe them they began to slowly disappear,
then suddenly one reappeared, followed by two, then three. On at
least one occasion four or five appeared. Each time they would
slowly fade and eventually disappear. This occurred several
times and when they would reappear they might do so in differing
numbers and in different positions, sometimes in a triangular
shape, sometimes stacked on top of each other, sometimes line
abreast, etc. When the objects appeared they might stay
illuminated 10 or more minutes."

Of course it is impossible to tell what this man saw, but like
so many other witnesses he is convinced that it was not an
aircraft, or flares.

World Net Daily has several photographs and more on the story
