I had just moved to Muldrow, OK. and had guests from Weatherford, OK there. We turned on the 10PM news, and the announcer was saying that hundreds of people were out in the streets in Ft. Smith watching strange lights. We immediately went outside and could see them. They appeared a lot like the moon, except about 1/3 smaller, and of course there were several of them. They were all round, and the same size. It was a perfectly clear night. They would be perfectly still,and then move slowly, or sometimes very rapidly. They appeared to be about 2,000 to 3,000 ft. altitude, and we could hear nothing, absolutely no noise. We watched them for 10-15 minutes until we got too cold. I now live back in Central OKLA and there's a book in our local library which details this very sighting.
