Duration: 3 seconds
No of observers: 3

Location: St. George Island, AK, USA

Shape: Unknown
Characteristics: Left a trail

Ball of light streaking upwards

While sitting at a bonfire on the beach myself and 2 others seen a red ball of light rise from the horizon high into the sky and drop about 3 minutes apart, it was very fast and left a trail of light which rules out distress flares, the location of the lights was south southwest of zapadni bay a distance I estimate of 10 to 15 miles, the skies were clear and calm.


NUFORC has received no other reports. We cannot find St. George Island, AK, on our map, but wonder if the sighting might have been caused by a launch of a missile from the Kodiak launch facility. PD
