Location: Tecumseh, OK
Duration: 40 seconds
Characteristics: The object changed color
|Bright light flying past in the night
I first noticed the Light out of the corner of my eye. To the south, a bright oblong shape, white light Flying West to East. I wasn't wearing my glasses at the moment, but as soon as I noticed this object the light had toned down to an Amber color, then moments later the Amber light toned downed again. To a (Pinpoint) of one or Two red Lights; Which faded out quickly.
So then the entire Craft was lost in the darkness, still on a east to west course no lights at all.
I'm a retired Air Force Radar Operator. My Last 11 Years in the Service was with AWACS as a Crewmember. This sighting although very Brief was clearly not an aircraft of any sort.
One: The complete absence of Standard Navigational lights.
Two: The sighting had no associated engine Sounds, no sound at all. the Object while heading to the west, was I estimate doing around 130 Knots Airspeed, and it was low, maybe 2000 ft.
I have Oak Trees 45 to 50 feet high and it just above the top brances. The size of the object can't be determined. Nor the shape. It was just a light. Although my gut feeling tells me it was small and close.
(the Pinpoint red light just before it faded was a lot like the afterglow of a Halogen light when switched off).
