|Vertical strip of lights over Fort Cobb Lake
I was over at my in-laws house with the kids and we were going to a wrestling tournament the next morning in Mustang, OK so since I live in Cordell, I thought it would be easier to just sleep over at their house and leave out in the morning because they live over by the north side of the lake, 5 miles south of HW 152 and could just get back on 152 in the morning and go on to Mustang. Anyway, my mother-in-law was telling about how her and my father-in-law have seen things outside their house before around 8pm or 9pm so at about 8pm she went to lock the door and let the dogs out for the night and she was like "Hey, come here!!"
I went to the front of the house with some binoculars to check it out and sure enough there really were lights outside that were really bright orange and red and they were too low to be stars. When I first looked at it, it looked like a "T" and it had 4 lights coming down off of it and 2 on each side on the top. The two on the top on each side were white and the ones coming down off of it were red and orange! The top ones on each side went away as I watched and they never did come back. From then on, I was just looking at a vertical strip of lights. I handed the binoculars to my mother-in-law and she seen it too then handed it to my father-in-law and he seen it as well.
All of commotion woke up my son who is 8 years old and he seen it happen too. It started changing colors from red and orange to blue and even green and white. It looked like the red one in the middle was rotation around it somehow. It would get closer for a minute and then it would get farther away. Most of the time it just hovered and when it did move it moved really quickly, must faster then a jet. The only way we could tell it was moving away is because the lights on it would get smaller. The only other lights out were the street lights which are huge and right in front of the house but across the street is just the lake and there are n! o other houses in that area or lights that you could confuse this for.
It also never made any noise so it couldn't have been a helicopter. You could be looking right at it for a minute and then it would just disappear but then come back and finally about 25mins. later it was gone completely. I was in total shock but my in-laws were not quite as surprised because they had seen things in that area before.
I have no idea what it was and I can't information about UFOs for that area but I know there had to have been other people see this. Please email me if you seen it too or have seen other UFO sightings in that area before. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
