More reports come in of unexplained lights in night sky

     Several more Tri-Citians have come forward saying they saw unexplained lights in the sky as recently as Wednesday night, and self-described UFO tracking agencies are showing interest in the case.

The reports were similar to that of a Finley man who said he saw three lights gliding slowly from Burbank west over the Columbia River, then heading north toward Kennewick.

An air traffic controller has said the object likely was a military aircraft, and a Port of Pasco employee who saw the lights said he's certain they were military helicopters.

However, Peter Davenport, director of the Spokane-based National UFO Reporting Center who earlier said the sighting was consistent with a commercial aircraft, said Thursday that his interest in the case is piqued.

"I've gotten about eight calls (from witnesses) already," Davenport said Thursday.

Jerry Nelson told the Herald on Wednesday that he and his wife saw three lights -- two red and one white and red -- spaced far apart and gliding through the sky, moving "as slow or as fast as a blimp" between 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Nelson said the object made no sound, and the size and slow speed it moved convinced him it was not an airplane. . . .
