An American witness inside U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan, reports there were many people watching a series of "seven equally spaced lights" in the sky that appeared and reappeared during one evening, according to recent testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
"We were all in our office on Camp Leatherneck when we were told to come outside and see these really cool lights in the sky," the witness stated.
There were many witnesses to the event.
"I know that all of my friends on Facebook that were with us saw the same thing. They were up there long enough that people were leaving."
The lights were hovering in place, but they disappeared and reappeared again.
"They were up there for a long time without moving. They went away for a while and then came back. They didn't move or blink or make any noise. They looked like they were really high up but there was nothing to base that on. Pretty cool event."
The witness provided two images with the MUFON report, which was filed on February 26, 2012. The events occurred on February 7, 2010. Image 1 and Image 2. The above quotes were edited for clarity.
