multiple sightings of red lights

Greetings, This report is from the late 60’s. I was 13 at the time and we lived in a rural setting in Cotton County, Oklahoma.

After supper I would be the one to wash dishes and look out the window. Most nights I was entertained by watching the red lights in the sky. I tried several times to get my mother to come in and look at them, but she simply didn’t find it as interesting as what was on TV. She saw them but said it must be airplanes (Even though they didn’t move!). I have asked her if she remembers this and she doesn’t. It is very odd to me that everyone I have talked with doesn’t seem to remember seeing them. When we went to basketball games we would gather at the back of the bus and watch these lights follow us. This went on for months and months.

The lights were red and perfectly round. They didn’t glare but were bright. It is hard to say how big they were, but when I saw one next to a window at a neighboring house they appeared to be about two feet across, maybe less. They never moved--they would appear, disappear and reappear somewhere else. The number varied. Most times there was only about five, but I counted about 15 one night. They would appear up in the sky in perfect geometric formation. If there were four they would appear in a square, evenly spaced. If a fifth light joined them it would appear at ninety degrees. Sometimes they would have a couple of different groups. If one would disappear from one group it would appear with the other one. There was a vacant house about 1/8 mile up the road that had a security light. A light would disappear from the group and appear at different places around the vacant house. It was like something was checking it out. I never saw one around our house.

Often I would go to sleep in my bed by the window watching the lights. I was totally amazed. What was more amazing was that nobody else thought it was worth noticing.

They made no sound. Have you ever gotten any reports like this? Surely I’m not just imagining this! I have a couple of other things to ask about as well if you are interested. Like strange marks on the back of my hand, like a brand. And a glowing globe of light, very large that hovered over my car.

I would appreciate some feedback. Thanks
