I don't think your friend "misjudged" the the distance, because snipers are known for exaggerating distances.
Anyway good story, what UFO experiences have you had?
While your story in no way proves the Lubbock lights were birds, it does lend some credibility to the idea that birds at night can be mistaken for UFOs, and that it's possible to misjudge speed, altitude and distance of unknown objects.
In "Captain Edward J Ruppelt : Summer of the Saucers - 1952" (2000) Michael David Hall and Wendy Ann Connors refer to research by David Wheeler identifying the mysterious scientist as Professor Ducker. Their book suggests that "Ducker had had conversations with Ruppelt in later years and told him that he conclusively proved their UFO sightings were caused by birds. In fact, these author's have recently discovered this correspondence in Ruppelt's personal papers."
