VIBRATING LIGHTS FORMING A TRIANGLE IN CENTRE SKIES

WE USUALLY GO TO HUNT WILD PIGS IN THE VICINITY OF JORDAN RIVER AND NEAR THE SURROUNDINGS OF THE DEAD SEA. WE USUALLY SPEND THE NIGHT LOOKING FOR PIGS HIDDING INSIDE DENSE BUSHES. THREE OF MY FRIENDS WENT THAT NIGHT FOR HUNTING...I DID NOT GO WITH THEM. THE FOLLOWING ARE THE EVENTS TOLD TO ME BY MY WIFE'S BROTHER : "AT 2 AM I WAS SITTING ALONE WITH THE GUN IN MY HAND WAITING FOR ANY MOVEMENT SIGNALLY THE EXISTENCE OF A MOTHER PIG GETTING OUT OF THE BUSHES LOOKING FOR FOOD (USUALLY BANNANAS ) TO FEED HER YOUNG CHILDREN. I WAS FULLY ALERTED. IT WAS A CLEAR SKY WITH TEPERATURES AROUND 30 DEGREES CENTEGRADE. I LOOKED UP AT THE NIGHT SKY TO SEE THE STARS (WHERE YOU CAN SEE LARGER NUMBERS AND BIGGER STARS FROM THIS LOWEST-ON-EARTH LAND). I SPOTTED TWINKLING LARGE STAR LIKE LIGHT APPROACHING CENTRE SKY (RELATIVE TO MY POSITION) AT HIGH SPEED JUST TO STOP SUDDENLY (AT SKY CENTRE ABOVE MY HEAD). THE LIGHT KEPT TWINKLING AT CONSTANT EMMISSION AND STARTED VIBRATING IN SIDEWAYS MOTION. ATTRACTED MY ATTENTION , WAS THE SUDDEN APPEARENCE OF IDENTICAL LIGHT FORM APPROACHING WHERE THE FIRST ONE WAS (AT RIGHT ANGLE)AT HIGH SPEED JUST TO SUDDENLY STOP NEAR IT. BOTH NOW STARTED SYNCHRONIZINGLY VIBRATING AS IF WERE DANCING.

A THIRD IDENTICAL LIGHT (AT RIGHT ANGLE RELATIVE TO THE SECONG)APPEARED TO APPROCH THE FIRST FORMATION. A TRIANGLE LIKE FORMATION WAS FORMED CONSISTING OF VIBRATING IDENTICALY SIZED VIBRATING LIGHTS . THE WHOLE FORMATION NOW STARTED TO TURN AROUND ITSELF AT SLOW BUT ACCELERATING SPEED WITH LIGHTS TWINKLING IN HARMONY BUT VIBRATION HAS STOPPED.

THIS WHOLE SEEN CONTINUED FOR APPROXIMATELY 10 MINUTES. IT THEN DISSINTEGRATED IN THE SAME ORDER AND SEQUENCE AS IT WAS FORMED. THE LIGHTS WERE DISAPEARING AS THEY APPROACHED THEIR START POINT.

EVERYTHING RETURNED TO NORMAL.

((NUFORC Note: Report is, in fact, submitted from Jordan Date is approximate. We have invited the party who graciously submitted the report to invite the actual witnesses to submit reports with their personal recollections, as well. The date of the incident is approximate, and we have asked the party who submitted the report whether there is any possibility that the lights could have been advertising lights. We suspect this possibility is quite remote, but it is a possibility that we feel would have to be ruled out. PD))

Dear Mr. ((name deleted)),

Thank you very much for the excellent report! Also, I commend you on your ability to compose lucid, eloquent prose in English!! You write more skillfully, I observe, than most U. S. college students.

Can you be certain that the lights were not being projected by some type of device on the ground? The motion of the lights, as they rotated, is not > inconsistent with the motion seen in a type of advertising light we have here in the U. S., so I feel duty-bound to pose the question.

We will post your report in the near future. If your friends, or wife's brother, would like to submit reports about their recollections of the event, we would most welcome them. Please invite them to use our Online Report Form, if they would like to record the incident in their own words.

Thank you very much for sharing the interesting information with our Center!

Cordially, Peter Davenport

DEAR MR Davenport

I CALLED THE OBSERVER THIS MORNING AND HAD THE FOLLOWING COMMENTS:

* THE EVENT AREA IS A NON POPULATED SEMI MILITARY- CLOSED ZONE BOARDERING
JORDAN AND ISRAEL. HENCE, ENTRANCE PERMISSIONS ARE ALLOWED BUT TO FEW
TRUSTEES;COMMERCIALS ARE NOT TRANSMITTED TO THE PIGS?!.WE HAVE VISITED THE
AREA MANY MANY TIMES AND THAT WAS THE MOST UNIQUE OCCURING EVENT. WE CAN
EASLY (ME AND ALL MENTIONED VISITORS) DISTINGUISH MILITRY LIGHT PROJECTED AT
ALL ANGLES SCANNING NIGHT SKIES AND SURROUNDING LAND. NOTHING WAS SIMILAR TO
WHAT MY WIFE'S BROTHER HAS SEEN. ALSO, THE LIGHT EMITTED FROM THE "OBJECTS?"
WAS SO SATURATED AND CONDENSE IMPLYING A SOURCE NATURE AND NOT A REFLECTION OR EXTENSION OF A GROUND PROJECTION. ALSO VIBRATIONS WERE (AS DISCRIBED BY THE OBSERVER) SO TINY IMPLYING A SOURCE SELF SHAKING; A MINIMAL GROUND MOVEMENT OF A SKY PROJECTED EMISSION MEANS TENS OF KILOMETRES HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT AT THE DISTANTLY OBSERVED FOCUSED LIGHTS. ALSO, LUMINATION WAS STABLE AND CONSTANT WITH NO LIGHT SHADOWS OR LONG BEAMS EMITTING FROM THE GROUND. MOST IMPORTANT IS THAT IT WAS A VERY CALM NIGHT WITH NO REPORTS OF BOARDER PENETRATIONS URGING MILITARY SCANNING OF BOTH SIDES. UNFORTUNATELY, OBSERVERS LACK ENGLISH ABILITY TO EXPRESS ; LET ME BE THE CONNECTION.

ALL THE BEST FOR NOW

BEST REGARDS
