- WELL, BY THUNDER! A good friend of mine sent me the enclosed
- He and I have been observing the same EXACT phenomena
here in Central WA. for over a year and a half. This is not just an East
Coast occurrance. It is, however, the first known mainstream article reporting
- Those who are familiar with my posts will know that I
have been voicing my puzzlement over these objects for some time.
- I can add that there appear to be more and more of these
objects all the time. They are semi-stationary, but they do move upon occasion
rather suddenly. Many of them are placed in the constelations, as if to
make them appear part of the firmament.
- There are now dozens of them all over the night sky.
It's the pulsing lights that really throw me for a loop. WHY? Makes no
sense whatsoever. Too many and too random for a military grid, and why
the lights? If they are a secret government project, why light them up
like a bloody Christmas tree?
- On top of the increased numbers, there is also now a
complete second bank of these pulsing light objects much farther out in
- I URGE ALL RMN READERS AND AGENTS WHO ARE SO DISPOSED
TO TAKE A LOOK ON A CLEAR NIGHT.. After first glance, it will be impossible
not to see them. As stated in the enclosed newspaper article, the best
viewing time seems to be right after darkness falls. A pair of good binoculars
are a help, but not a neccesity.
- These so-called NASA experts and professional astronomers
cited in the attached article are.... well.. for lack of a better word,
either fictional charactors, hopelessly inept at their jobs, or, (and I
prefer this one)

- Mystery - Pulsating 'Stars' In The Night Sky
- Lights Have People Talking And Wondering What They Are
- By Chris Brennaman

- The lights begin to appear in the sky over Hortense after
dark as stars make their appearances.
- At first glance, they look like any other stars in the
- That initial image soon changes, however. Suddenly, objects
that looked like stars begin to pulsate in four distinct colors: red, blue,
yellow and green.
- Ron Carter first spotted them on Nov. 13, and has watched
them in the sky above his home every night since.
- "At first I didn't think anything of it," said
Carter, who lives in Hortense and works at a bank in Glynn County.
- "I was cutting the garage light off when I saw the
red, blue, yellow and green lights flickering. I thought it was the size
of a small plane. Then the lights went out and came back on about 100 yards
to the east."
- There's no sequence or pattern and the lights are brilliant
enough to see with the naked eye. Sometimes, the objects are stationary,
disappearing as fast as they appear. Other times, they make sporadic movements
across the sky.
- When Carter called his neighbors out to see the strange
phenomenon the next night, they had the same reaction.
- Reggie O'Berry said he's lived in the area most of his
life and has never seen anything like it.
- "I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me at
first," he said. "But it wasn't a trick. It was a normal night
sky. We looked at some of them through Ron's telescope. One was boomerang
shaped and another was a round, sphere shape. And they were moving."
- While the men don't know exactly what they've been seeing,
they're avoiding using the UFO label.
- "We're not saying that's what they are," said
David Ayers, another neighbor who has seen the lights. "We've just
seen some colored lights in the sky that we can't explain. They don't move
or look like planes or meteorites. I just want to know what they are."
- So far, there are no explanations to explain everything.
- Benjamin Zellner, an astronomy professor at Georgia Southern
University, said strange light patterns from stars can often be attributed
to dust and ice in the atmosphere. The former NASA employee said a prism
effect is often seen from stars near the horizon.
- "Stars can do strange things given the right conditions,"
Zellner said. "I don't think people realize that."
- Becky Lowder, who runs Georgia Southern University's
planetarium, said some of the anomalies could be attributed to a brilliant
- "This time of year, we have a lot of what we call
first magnitude stars," she said. "These are big stars that come
into view during the winter months. Stars like Capella in the Auriga constellation
and Aldebaran in Taurus will flash different colors as they come close
to the horizon and as the Earth rotates."
- However, neither Zellner or Mrs. Lowder could attribute
the objects' sporadic movements to stars or say why they have appeared
consistently since mid-November.
- They are most visible from 9:30 to 10:30 p.m. in the
- The Hortense residents aren't the only ones who are seeing
the lights. A man reported having witnessed a similar occurrence above
his home near Augusta earlier this week.
- Also, according to the Mutual UFO Network, a nationwide
non-profit research group, identical reports are being filed from areas
up and down the East Coast about pulsating red, blue and green lights in
the night sky.
- "There's something [happening] on the Eastern Seaboard,"
said Tom Sheets, state director of MUFON, Georgia. "What it is I don't
- Sheets said most of the incidents that come across his
desk can be attributed to the mundane. Historically, experimental aircraft
are the cause of mistaken identity the most.
- "There are a lot of things we don't know exist up
there," Sheets said. "But the incidents in Hortense seem to be
more widespread. It's not relegated to just one place. That's the kind
of case worth looking into.
- "Since this doesn't appear to be an isolated event,
we may be filing this under 'the unknown.'"
