An American witness inside U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan, reports there were many people watching a series of "seven equally spaced lights" in the sky that appeared and reappeared during one evening, according to recent testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

 

"We were all in our office on Camp Leatherneck when we were told to come outside and see these really cool lights in the sky," the witness stated.

There were many witnesses to the event.

 

"I know that all of my friends on Facebook that were with us saw the same thing. They were up there long enough that people were leaving."

 

The lights were hovering in place, but they disappeared and reappeared again.

 

"They were up there for a long time without moving. They went away for a while and then came back. They didn't move or blink or make any noise. They looked like they were really high up but there was nothing to base that on. Pretty cool event."


The witness provided two images with the MUFON report, which was filed on February 26, 2012. The events occurred on February 7, 2010. Image 1 and Image 2. The above quotes were edited for clarity.

Special thanks to New Jersey MUFON Field Investigator Ken Pfeifer for brining this case to our attention. We previously covered a UFO case from Afghanistan in:  UFOs reported near Bagram Air Force Base, Afghanistan



The following is the unedited and as yet uninvestigated report filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If MUFON investigates and reports back on this case, I will release an update. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.



Afghanistan, February 7, 2010 -  We were all in our office on Camp Leatherneck when we were told to come outside and see these really cool lights in the sky. MUFON Case 36089.

 

Here are 2 of the 6 photos that I took one night (on or about 7 Feb, 2010) while at our office in the MLG compound on Camp Leatherneck Afg. I know that ALL of my friends on FB that were with us saw the same thing. They were up there long enough that people were leaving.

 

They were up there for a long time without moving. They went away for a while and then came back. They didn't move or blink or make any noise. They looked like they were really high up but there was nothing to base that on. Pretty cool event.

 

Now that I have seen it on TV it is super cool that we were able to witness it.

1. I was in my office in teh MLG Compound on Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan. 
2. One of the Marines in the Company came into the office to tell us about the lights. 
3. At first we thought maybe flares or weather balloons but they didn't change alt. or fade out or fall. 
4. As my attachments show there were 7 equally spaced lights in the sky that did not appear to move or change. 
5. Very interested to see the lights, so many people saw them and didn't even stop to look at them. There was a lot going on during the day but nothing to distract us during the sighting. 
6. I hate to say it but after maybe 45 minutes we just went back inside to work.

I have 4 more pics they are sharper but since I was moving they make the light appear as if they were moving. The two I attached are pretty clear.

I was outside smoking and looked at the stars like I always do. I noticed one above the horizon that was oscillating very strangely (not like the other bright stars). When I decided to keep my eyes on it that's when it started to move around. At first I just assumed it was an airplane since they no…
