A few days ago I posted a video of strange red lights over Dugway Proving Ground that appeared to drop white flare-like objects towards the ground.

Dugway was on lockdown at the time (Wednesday 26th January 2010) which made the sighting more intersting, but now it looks like more lights (possibly the same) were videoed on the same evening.

These lights were filmed near American Fork, located east of Dugway Proving Ground, separated by a mountain range. Could they be the same thing?

Pulling into my driveway the night of the 26th, my 10 year old says “Dad, what are those?” I had a flipcam in the seat next to me so I started filming. 6 minutes later, they drifted out of view. They were hovering in perfect formation and once in a while dropped sparkler-type things. I figured the news would explain it later that night, but they didn’t. ABC4 was the only newscast to carry the story. Lots of witnesses, this is the best vid of the lights that I’ve seen posted. Who knows??

Orginal Dugway lockdown video.

The lights appear to be very similar and probably are one and the same thing, but what they are is uncertain — I vote ballons, but what they are dropping is unknown.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
