National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report

Posted: 8/12/2008
Location: Macon, GA
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 2 mins.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Two lights flashing back and forth, moving in unison across the sky. No visible solid object could be seen between them.

Saw two reddish-white lights about 30deg. above horizon moving together in the same direction, from south to north. The lights were flashing in an alternating pattern in rhythm back and forth, one in the front then one in the back, in the direction of movement. The distance between the lights, well over the length of a football field, suggest the aircraft was close by, but was unable to see the body of craft due to ground lights and there were no sounds of planes nearby. There were no other lights in the vicinity of the object besides the two flashing back and forth in unison. At first I thought the flashing lights were from extremely tall transmitter towers halfway across town, but since they were moving slowly from south to north in unison it couldn't have been those.
