A soldier stationed at Bagram Air Force Base, Afghanistan, reports a May 15, 2009, UFO sighting of “red coloured lights” flying around the mountain area surrounding the base, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) database.

The January 10 report details how incoming aircraft at night do not use lights “to prevent insurgents from attacking them during landing.”

One of the lights “moved back in forth in a slow motion, but also appeared to hover from time to time.”

The soldier reports that others saw the lights too and “wondered what they were.”

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 International MUFON investigates and reports back on this case, I will release an update.

Afghanistan – May 15, 2009 – Multiple Lights over Bagram AB, AF. MUFON Case # 21424.

I was stationed at Bagram AB during most of 2009. On or about May 15, 2009; I was enjoying a night off. I had stepped out of my B-Hut for a cigarette and noticed several red colored lights around the mountains surrounding the base.

One light in particular appeared to be an orb and was hovering over the SW end of the base. This light was not like any aircraft light that operates in the area.

Most of the aircraft that are coming in at night do not have any lights on to prevent insurgents from attacking them during landing. The SW light moved back in forth in a slow motion, but also appeared to hover from time to time. Another light located to the SE hovered over a mountain pass at an altitude of about 25-30k feet. The third light was over the mountains just to the E of the base. I did see a pair of F-15s go up and begin patrols, but made no effort to intercept the lights.

A Kiowa helicopter was also flying around, but this was more likely as part of the base’s standard force protection than in relation to the lights. These lights remained until just before sunrise, but had not lost any visibility like a star would as sunrise began. I did not see how the lights left the area as I had returned to my quarters. I know other soldiers saw them and wondered what they were from discussions at my office as well as the chow hall.
