Cluster of lights baffles Yuma couple

Nov 7, 2002


A Yuma couple did more than a double-take when they saw a
cluster of circular white lights zip across the sky Tuesday
night, they said.

At about 8:10 p.m., a woman said she saw the object appear out
of the northeast. She called to her husband, who came out just
as the the lights crossed overhead and continued south, where
they disappeared from view.

The couple, who asked not to be identified, said they're not
trying to cause a stir. They don't believe in UFOs, they said.

"I'm going to die of curiosity until I find out," said the
woman, who took on a light-hearted tone. And she added, "I would
like to know if anyone else saw it."

The couple live at a mobile home park off 4th Avenue extension.

The woman described the object as a cluster of about 15 disc-
shaped white lights that moved in unison. Her husband saw them
just as they passed high above their home. The object seemed to
be climbing higher and moving south. The lights were visible for
just a couple of minutes, they said.

Crop duster pilot Matt Fieldgrove said it was probably two
military planes flying side by side with their lights pointed
toward the ground.

"I see them a lot of times when I'm flying," he said. It wasn't
a crop duster because most planes have only three lights on the
wings, he said.

Officials at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma had another possible

"Our best guess it was probably a crop duster," said Sgt. Tracie
Kessler, media chief. "If there was anything going on, flight
ops would have known about it."

Yuma International Airport didn't receive any reports out of the
ordinary, officials there said.

Yuma Proving Ground is testing flares, but not at night, said
Chuck Wullenjohn, spokesman for the base. He could not provide a
possible explanation.

The couple said they weren't able to hear any sounds of a plane.

"They couldn't have been balloons because they didn't bobble and
they weren't carried by the wind," the woman said.

Sightings of disc-shaped lights that look like portholes or
windows are very common, said Bridget Ceccacci, a library
associate at the International UFO Museum and Research Center in
Roswell, N.M.

"It's hard to say what they are without seeing them," she said.
