Strange green lights over Van Buren and Alma, Arkansas? Not sub station explosion.

On or around 10:00 pm the electricity in Alma and Mulberry went out. We were told that a sub station had an explosion and the transformers were on fire.

At almost the same time my mother called in a panic and told me that my bother and my son were driving from Van Buren to Kibler on Kibler Hwy and as they crossed Arkansas St. they seen what they said the sky all of the sudden turned a turquoise green color.

It flickered and it was large. As they drove toward it the lights stopped and disappeared then re appeared further ahead and it kept doing this for nearly 8 minutes. They followed this for at least 3 miles and then all of the sudden it went away.

My brother said it had no shape but it glowed and the glowing light flickered. He said the size of the glow was massive.

He called the police and they said they had nearly 30 reports of strange lights in the area at the time.

The news said it was an explosion at a sub station but my brother said that was NOT what he seen. My son is almost 14 and is scared to death from what he seen.

I want to know if there has been any other reports on this web site and if so i would love to hear them.
