Duration:15 minutes
A faint light at first thought to be telstar (communications satellite) However, light was joint by about 4 others that were pulsating. This was similar to a "dog star" but they would move vertically down and up then sideways. We then thought it must be helicopters at the naval station because of unusual movement. I went to get binoculars from my pickup and as I pulled them out of the case the pulsating lights became exceedingly bright and left the horizon faster than a "shooting star" The exit speed was phenomenal. I remember that the lights followed the spectrum except that a few of the visible wavelengths were absent. The lights pulsated as opposed to the blinking lights of an air craft. It was as if the light expanded and contracted with the visible frequency. Search the records...I think the carson appeal or reno newspaper had an article on lights seen in fallon, nev This was not an atmospheric disturbance of a stars light. I think there was intelligent control although the purpose of the up and down movements are puzzling.
