Big white light, then smaller red lights seen in the eastern sky that should not have been there and then vanished.

Was seen first as a bright white light as big around as an ink pen app. 300 yds away in the eastern sky at 20:15. Elevation was at a 40 to 45 degree angle. Height was about what one would expect of a low fling small aircraft. The skys were clear until 22:15. We observed the light not moving for app. 5 minutes. My fellow security guard and I were on patrol and lost sight of the light behind a large two story house before going on with our patrol. After doing an outer perimter check, which took about 5 to 7 minutes, we reached a place we should have been able to see the light again and it was gone.

At app. 21:20 I dropped my partner off at the security office and drove the same route to see if I could see the light again. The white light was not to be seen, but I seen three red lights perfectly diagonal and spaced in the same general location. I observed the lights for a minute or two trying to think if there was any towers or buildings in that direction tall enough for these unblinking red lights. The answer is No. I started my patrol of the south part of the proprty and returned to security office at 21:30. Upon returning to security office I spotted 2 red lights directly in front of security and pointed them out to my partner. When asked if he had ever seen them there before he said no.

These lights seemed to be about a mile or mile and a half futher east, hard to tell. They too were unblinking and unmoving. The red lights I saw before and these were smaller than the white light we had seen earlier. They were also slightly lower in the sky than the white light we had seen ealier. Also the spaceing was like the middle red light, when I saw three red lights, was missing. A third security gaurd came in at 21:45 and we pointed the lihgts out to him. At 21:50 I crossed the road in front of security station to get the lights from security and cars going down the road behind me to get a clearer look. I wanted to see if these lights were connected, because if they were this thing would have had to have been a hundred yards wide, very big.

From security one can see radio towers blinking red but there was a different look about hese lights and they never blinked on and off. While trying to get a closer a look a friend of mine called me on my cell phone. I told him to go outside and see if he could see what I was seeing. He could not and before he might see anything the 2 lights went out as if someone had turned the switch off.

Just a metion here that when my partner came in that night he had a 12 sec. phone video of a simlar white light seen from his house in Springdale Ar at 4:30am the night before that he showed me when he first came to work that night. I also saw the white light the night before when I was leaveing work at 22:00 but did not take time to see. if it was a helocopter or plane. He still has it. There were planes in the area, very close, and they should have seen what ever this was plainly. I will try to get more info from local airports and radio stations to see if anyone else saw this and exactly where and how big this might have been. I called one local police station, newspaper,tv station that night to se if anyone else had seen this. Never heard back from tv or newspaper. Police said they had not reieved any reports of strange lights.
