Another oddity regarding UFO lights:
In many reports the lights appear to "respond" to high powered flashlights, etc. (see CSETI)
There are many, many reports from the San Luis Valley of Colorado (Mysterious Valley) (where I grew up) that when a UFO is spotted by a motorist, and
the motorist pulls off the road and shuts off his headlights, the UFO lights respond by turning off. Then when the motorist turns his lights back on,
the UFO returns the compliment. In one recorded incident, the motorist turned off his headlights but not the parking lights. To his amazement, the UFO
light changed from white to amber (the color of the parking lights). Upon turning around and beating a hasty retreat because the UFO was coming toward
them, a passenger in the car turned to see the UFO with red lights (tail light color). All of this happened while the UFO was at a very low altitude
and well below the mountain range in the background.
The San Luis Valley is a UFO hotspot of long duration - 1950's to present day. It was the home of the 1st animal mutilation, Snippy the horse (only
the horse's name was actually Lady, Snippy being her mother - leave it to the press!). Actually, the UFO sightings date back to the Indian tribes of
the area prior to the white man's arrival.
As a kid there (in the 50's - "62) (yeah, I'm an old geezer) I remember very well the UFO FLAP of the late 50's (and continuing virtually unabated
since). I had a couple of sightings as well as did many friends, relatives and acquaintances. In 1960 the US Army sent several Heuy helicopters to
Alamosa, Colo for "high altitude" testing, research and training. We all figured they came to keep an eye on the UFO's, especially since they
always went out at night and headed toward the Sand Dunes National Monument - where most of the UFO's seemed to pop up.
