The two cases you mention sound oddly similar to an Ohio case
from July of 2000 in which travelers near Ashtabula, Ohio were
surrounded and paced by multiple red lights. Details below -- KY

Subject: UFO Sighting Location: Between East Liverpool and
Ashtabula, Ohio, Route 11 Date: Saturday night [July 22]/Sunday
morning [July 23] Time: Between 11:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.

Three motorists advised the Ashtabula County Highway Patrol
office that they were "surrounded and paced by multiple red
lights" while traveling northbound for nearly 40-miles on Route
11 between East Liverpool and Ashtabula, Ohio [Trumbull and
Ashtabula Counties] around midnight on Saturday night, July 22.

The three motorists, ages range from between 60 to 70-years,
were viewed as highly credible by Northeastern Ohio researcher
George Pindroh, who interviewed them on Sunday, July 23. The key
witness is an ex-law enforcement officer. Pindroh, contacted for
a statement on this report, graciously afforded information of
the sighting. He also expressed his respect for the privacy of
the witnesses.

Pindroh told of how the threesome, while driving late at night
on a desolate stretch of Route 11, became alarmed as a red glow
came into view. One passenger asked the driver if the light
source was a truck on the road. As they continued to travel
toward the light source, they report that 'many lights' suddenly
became visible 'all around' their vehicle. One light was
extremely huge [estimated to be at least 3-feet in diameter] and
the other lights were smaller, basketball sized objects that
were strangely seen all around the car, on top, on each side and
in back of their auto, a Cadillac.

The witnesses related to Pindroh that the lights, estimated to
number almost 35 at one time, were thought to be attached to one
larger, unseen object, rather than free-flying light sources.
The lights, said to be very close to and above the car, paced
the threesome as they drove an estimated 40-miles along Route
11, headed south to north. One passenger told Pindroh of being
"scared to death."

While driving along with the lights in pursuit, there was no
traffic seen on Route 11 with the exception of one other car. It
was thought that this car had stopped and its driver was looking
out his window at the lights. The threesome, however, continued
on without stopping.

While traveling on, the ex-law enforcement officer reported to
Pindroh that they had experienced an unusual 'dark area' that
coincided with a disruption involving the car's burglar alarm
system. The electronic car alarm was said to have 'went off'
repeatedly while they drove along, further contributing to the
mayhem. Strangely, a rain-like moisture had also accumulated on
the bottom half of the windshield on the front exterior portion
of the car.

"As best as they could describe," Pindroh reported, "a strange
darkness occurred and everything went black."

The claimants informed that the lights seemed to 'go to the
left' and toward the front of their car as they approached their
home. The first thing they did when entering the house was to
rush to the phone and place a call to the police.

In investigation of the claims, researcher George Pindroh
contacted the Ashtabula County State Highway Patrol office on
Tuesday, July 25 and confirmed the advisement to their office of
numerous red-lights by the claimants. Pindroh also learned that
there were additional calls about 'red lights' received at the
same office around the same time frame, and yet another call was
received at the Highway Patrol Office on Sunday concerning red
lights seen on Saturday night.

Learning that the automobile was later found to have had its
pre-programmed radio stations 'reset' and its clock also found
to be inaccurate due to electronic default, Pindroh consulted
with a Cadillac dealer concerning the alarm system disruption
and the radio/clock issue. The dealer was not able to fully
explain the electronic oddities, noting that if the car had lost
power during the experience, the driver would know as power
steering would be lost and the car would have to be re-started.
Further, the moisture on the vehicle as described by the
witnesses is not compatible with condensation from the air
conditioning system, according to the Cadillac dealer.

Thanks to George Pindroh of the Cleveland UFOlogy Project [CUP]
for the preliminary details of this sighting that was reported
to the Ashtabula County State Highway Patrol office and
releasing the information for this summary. Pindroh further
advises that a full and more detailed report on this case is

Special NOTE:

Another UFO sighting was reported in Ashtabula County, Ohio on
February 28, 2000. This event, near Saybrook, Ohio, was reported
by area residents and law enforcement officials.
