Location: Talofofo (Guam),
|3 bright (Venus bright) red lights approached Guam from ~255o at 20o elevation at 0945 GMT 12 May and faded away.
On Guam, on 12 May, at about 1945 local time (0945 GMT) both my wife and I saw 3 separate, bright red, moving lights in the western sky. The 3 lights were at about 15-20 degrees of elevation and about 245 to 260 degrees of azimuth. They were separated by about 5 degrees of azimuth, at approximately the same elevation, and all three were near the elevation of Orion, the moon and Jupiter, but approximately 15 degrees south of them at that time.
The objects made no noise that we heard, but moved towards us (to the east) and then made hairpin turns to the WNW and faded into the night sky. The entire event lasted no longer than about 5 minutes.
We called ATCC at both the Won Pat International Airport and Anderson Air Force Base. Neither reported seeing anything on their radar during that time period.
One of us is a private civilian pilot and a holder of a Ph. D. in Oceanography with much experience observing the night sky. Nothing of this nature has ever been seen before by this reporter.
