All dates and times are approximate. it was a warm evening, june timeframe, between the hours of 2100 and 2200 hours local, respectfully. i was outside my work area, beside the building which held the operations office, command team work space. the fob was a “blackout” fob, which means that at night the entire area is pitch black, and everyone is required to observe proper light disciple; only red lense flash lights were authorized after sunset.
while outside smoking with another nco she pointed out a series of stationary lights which had appeared above the fob. there were between 8 and 10 orange-yellow lights. they moved together in a semi-oval, or chevron shape pattern. they appeared to have come from the direction of camp chapman which is only a few kilometers from our location at the time, and seemed to be heading towards sabari which borders khost district to the south.
the lights remained at the same elevation, and brightness for several minutes. we knew this wasn’t illume rounds from sabari or from chapman because of how long the lights were stationary above, and how they seemed to shift and turn in order to pass over a nearby hill. the lights flew at an unknown height, but even as they changed direction slightly they still maintained the same level of brightness. no noise could be heard coming from whatever these lights were.
