Yes, I was the first to ask the Air National Guard, and the
first response I received was negative, the second response I
received was that they were dropped at 8:30 PM, and the third
response was from another source that said 10:00 PM. The
National Guard Bureau gave no time at all, but stated that the
flare drops were on the gunnery range due southwest of us and
not in line with the lights seen.
