|Hello I am a 52 year old male and live central Oklahoma. I build custom cars and motorcycles for a living and work in a private shop on the outer northwest edge of Oklahoma city. During these hot months I will work late at night and early mornings to beat the heat.
On Saturday, july 21, 2012, at approximatly 10:00 pm I was headed to work. At about three miles out from the shop I noticed this mass of lights ahead to the west and northwest. I was coming from the east and noticed more and more of the lights as i progressed toward the west. I was on W. Memorial ave between N. Rockwell ave. and N. Council Rd.
As I approached Council road that is when i saw the most lights at one time. They were a glowing red/orange that did not flash but seemed to appear and disappear according to the angle you were veiwing them. By then I had my phone out and was attempting to record these lights while trying to get safley off the road. The large group of lights were in some type of triangular formation headed straight west, there were approximatly 15 to 20 lights in this formation and the angle of view would be 25 to 30 degrees. As the large group went out of sight there were smaller groups, say 4 or 5 lights and i saw three of these smaller groups. These are the ones I captured in the first video and were coming from the north headed south then turned to the west and followed the large group that was out of sight by then.
I then proceeded to the shop, off of Memorial rd. and County line rd. where i shot the second video. In this video i had turned out the outside lights around the shop hoping to have less light interferance. while filming this video i was facing dihttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFJD6AUgp18rectly to the south . The lights that i captured here were headed straight west. My angle of sight was again 25 to 30 degrees.
The weather conditions that night were clear skys. according to the National Weather Service out of Norman Oklahoma. At 10:00 pm the wind was @ 5 mph out of the east and the loft, which was checked at 6:00 pm was out of the northeast @ 15 mph at 3000 ft. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GVI1yTHUHU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFJD6AUgp18 Here are the two videos i captured and posted on youtube.
