Strange Lights' Seen Over State Are Unexplained

Ardmore (UPI) -- Strange, blinking lights that changed colors flitted across the sky over southern Oklahoma and North Texas early Tuesday, and authorities said they were unable to explain the sightings.

Several sightings were reported by police and other officers, and some by private citizens.

"At first I thought it was a falling star, but it kept changing directions", said dispatcher Mike Bracken of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol's Ardmore district headquarters.

Bracken said the light, which appeared on the horizon to the southeast about 3 a.m., "seemed to be moving too fast for a plane."

Bracken said Linda Panic, a police dispatcher, also saw the strange light.
