Witnesses in Nebraska and Arizona seem to be describing the same "staggered" set of lights in the night sky on February 20 and 22, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) database.

On February 20, in Nebraska, a husband and wife noticed "a bunch of orangish-red lights in a row in the sky."

They counted nine lights.

Two days later, on February 22, an Arizona witness watched "many staggered lights ... that appeared to be in a line."

The following are the unedited and as yet uninvestigated reports filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If Nebraska and Arizona MUFON investigates and reports back on these cases, I will release an update.

NE, February 20, 2010 - 9 lights in a row that were 'staggered'. MUFON Case # 21978.

My husband and I went out to smoke a cigarette and I looked up in the sky and saw a bunch of orange-ish-red lights in a row in the sky.

At first, I thought 'oh my god, are we under attack?' but then realized it was something 'different'. I yelled at my husband to look at them and then I went down my from porch steps because I realized there were more of these lights behind a big evergreen tree (it was blocking my vision of the sky.

My husband and I counted 9 of these lights.

I yelled at him to get the video camera and within a few more seconds they were just 'gone'.(like it slowly disappeared) I called 911 and reported strange lights in the sky and they said they would call SAC and the Air controller to see if they know of anything. I then decided to call KETV channel 7 (this is approximately at 9:30pm)and report it to them.

When the main switchboard operator answered he said that 'many people have called in about this' and he asked me if I lived around 90th and Fort and Blondo area. I said 'yes'. He asked me to describe what I saw. I told him and he said that this is what all of the other callers were describing. He then said that some of the caller's were actually pulling their cars over and looking at them while they called the news station. He then said that they had sent out a reporter to try to get a video or pictures of what we were all seeing and he took my name and phone number down.

I stayed up to watch all of the local news stations (I was flipping back and forth between the 2 because the Olympic's was on the other) and they didn't mention anything about people calling the station or seeing these 'strange lights'. I went and got a Sun morning paper right away the next morning because I was sure there would be a little 'snipit' of this event in the Midlands' section-but no such luck. Basically, I haven't seen or heard anything re: what these lights were. I KNOW that they weren't 9 planes flying in a row because they were too close to each other and almost 'evenly space'. There was no noise to them, either, and no blinking lights.

If this was our military, it's pretty amazing that they had 9 planes flying that close together with no noise--and there may have been more of these lights that I couldn't see because it was cloudy that night and a few could have been behind clouds. I would really just like to know what it was I saw because it has forever changed my life.

AZ, February 22, 2010 - Mutable Orbs of different colored light. MUFON Case # 21983.

At around 12 AM I noticed a bright light in the sky and it was flickering different colors. At first I thought it was just an airplane but it stayed in the sky in the same spot for over 20 minutes. I got my binoculars out to see if it could tell what it was.

It looked like a ball of light that was shifting colors randomly and at random intervals.

After an hour of looking at it with my binoculars I dusted off my telescope to have a closer look. To my astonishment it was not just a singular orb of light but many staggered lights in that appeared to be a line. I was able to observe this light structure for about an hour and a half then clouds moved in and I was no longer able to see it.

It was 5-9 orbs that looked to be in a staggered line. It looked like the light was reflected and was not self emitted. The object or objects stayed in the same spot for over 2 hours. It was in the western sky at about 45 degrees from the horizon.
