((NUFORC Note: We spoke briefly by telephone with this witness. They were located near Chile's (sp?) Restaurant when they initially witnessed the objects, and were looking slightly north of east as they gazed at the lights. Then, they drove east approximately one mile along State Street (??) to Perryville Road, where they stopped again, and continued to look at the lights in the eastern sky. PD))
