Animal Reaction Feature:
Two college students saw two square glowing patches of light moving in formation slowly and silently. They estimated the altitude of the lights as greater than 500 feet and gave no estimate of the lights’ distance from them.   Although dogs were barking, the witnesses speculated it was “because the animals sensed the excitement of their masters.”

Joan Woodward, Animal Reaction Specialist:
At 2:11 am on a clear night in the city of Norman, two male college students, 23 and 22, one majoring in English and the other in psychology, were watching for meteors in their backyard.  They noticed lights moving slowly to the south.  They went to the front of the house and followed the lights south down the street.  When one commented there were no red lights,  a red light did appear between the patches of light.  At that point, the lights turned east and moved out of sight.

The men described two square, glowing patches of “blue-gray” fluorescent light in formation off their diagonal corners.  Their separation was less than their width.  The small red light with radial rays appeared between the square patches.  The patches became horizontally elongated as they moved away from the witnesses. 

There was no sound and no EM effects.  The men reported they had chills and tingling on their arms and legs when the red light appeared right after they had mentioned the absence of red lights.

The men called the police and were interviewed by MUFON the same day as the sighting.
