Location: Alma KOA, AR
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Lights flash on and off near Alma, Arkansas

I was camping at the KOA in Alma, Arkansas, sleeping in my van. At 0200 I had to make a trip to the bathroom. When I returned to my van, I opened the side door and sat a while to cool off. (I'm from the west coast and live near the ocean, so the heat and humidity was hard to take.) I believe I was facing south.

Just over the trees I spotted a group of bright lights blinking on and off. One would stay on for about 5 seconds then go out, then another would light, etc. They never came on all at the same time. They were stationary and in no particular pattern.

I figured there was a group of cell phone towers or something on a mountain.

When I got up in the morning, I looked the area over through binoculars and there were no towers at all.

I humorously noted the event in my blog and didn't think much about it until I ran across this video on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlwnfU3fUbU I don't know if the video is a hoax but those lights looked and behaved like the ones I saw that night in Arkansas.
