weather conditons were winds gusting 40/45 mph when all power went off in area, we stepped outside and immediatly nsaw 8/10 large red lights high in eastern sky. they were stationary. within 10 seconds all lights dimmed and disappeared with out any movement. sky was perfectly clear and cloudless.
My wife and I just finished a light dinner at a local resteraunt/casino at about 21:30 hours and were just about to walk outside to our car. the weather was warm about 60 degrees fahrenheit with strong westerly winds gusting to about 45mph. Just as we were about to leave the building, the power went off in the entire area of what is called the Heights. When we walked out side the door we immediatly sighted 8/10 large dull red glowing lightes at about a 45 degree angle from the eastern horizon and they appeared to be quite low in altitude over the parking lot of said resteraunt. These large red lights appeared to have an aura about them possibly because of blowing dust. The lights were stationary and not moving. My wife and I observed these lights for about five seconds and she rushed back into the building to bring out more witnesses. Within the time she returned into the building and came back out with 2 other witnesses, the lights started to dim in unison like the dimmer switch on a houshold room light and totally disappeared from sight. There was no Physical or definite outline of any type of structure or airframe. There were no clouds in the sky and stars could be clearly seen where the lights had been but in no correlation to any star groups or constellations. The lights were the size of ones thumbnail. Unfortunatly the other two witnesses saw nothing by the time they came out of the darkened building. The lights were not in any kind but rather a ragged line from north to south.
We were unable to confirm this report via a return e-message. The address provided for the witness is an invalid address, apparently.
