UAP Lights Phase 1 Revised 

Jack Sliwa.   Technologist    03/25/21


  After finding too many hits in the former Phase1a were actually multiple UAPs appearing as light dots rather than multiple lights on a given UAP I completely redid the study and made the search terms much more specific (and necessarily longer) referencing mounted lights ON UAPs. The extensive new search terms are included in this study as well as the full table of results. This search of my database took much longer and the identified files were exported and additionally checked for duplicates.


  Let us refer to the first plot of the results below. This first plot covers groups of lights of a given color having numbers of between 1 and 12 lights of that color per group. I stress that the witness may have seen other color lights at the same time but the coming Phase 2 will address multiple simultaneous colors as planned before. Most of the time these first plot comments were the only color comments made about the seen UAPs.

Note that the X-Axis has labels such as "7 to 9". These are comments #'s 7-9 in this case three different ways to describe that the UAP had three lights of a given color. These details are all in the tables. To make it easier I have inserted vertically oriented text descriptors for the subtotals.

  First note that red and white lights dominate the chart and their respective total sightings are both just below 8000 each. Second, note that single red lights (1464) and single white lights (1000) are the lights most often seen. Third, notice that unlike all other colors the white and red light occurrences track each other-particularly between 3-12 lights per group. Note that the curves for white and red are almost identical from 3 to 8 lights. The author proposes that white and red lights are switchable between colors white and red and that the lights are often switched resulting in a similar count. In Phase 2 I will specifically look for switching behaviors.

  Now note that there is a peak of 3 lights per group particularly for white and red but somewhat also for orange, green and yellow. The author believes that these are typically the 3 lights seen under triangle or wedge shaped UAPs. This can also be verified in Phase 2. It is of interest that there are fewer sets of two lights and that 2 white lights are more common that 2 red lights. That may reflect the dual "headlights" frequently seen on triangles and wedge UAPs. Finally, note that for single lights seen on UAPs that red significantly dominates white. This might be because distant or higher UAPs have their white lights (headlights?) off and the red lights are what we would regard as running lights.

  Also of interest is the steady drop of single lights going from green to blue to orange and yellow. Green can be described as the most peculiar color because it shows no peak at 3 lights. Single green lights dominate green.

  Now lets look at the second plot shown directly below. This plot contains comments heard from UAP sightings not included in the original Phase 1.

 I'll have a fair amount to say about the above second plot. First, notice that between 1 and 3 arrays of lights have been seen with orange lights. No other color caused the arrays comment. Second we note for the "1 row of lights" responses that we have that comment 46 times for white, 25 times for red, 11 times for yellow and 3 times for green. Thus white and red single rows of lights dominate as they do single lights. Next we note the huge frequency of comments describing "multiple" or "many" lights of a given color. Specifically we see 4701 such white comments, 3899 such red comments, 1722 such blue comments, 1519 such green comments, 942 such orange comments and 741 such yellow comments. So there are almost 5X as many comments regarding "multiple" white lights as single white lights. Next we see the same for red wherein we have about 3X+ as many comments about "many" red lights as for single red lights. Next we see a similar case for "many" blue lights wherein we see about 5X times "many" blue light comments as single blue light comments. Next we have for green lights about 3X+ as many comments about "many" green lights as for single green lights. Next we have about 4X+ as many comments regarding "many" orange lights as single orange lights. Finally, for yellow lights, we have about 7X+ as many comments about "many" yellow lights as for single yellow lights. So what do these numbers mean. I think it means that there are more often than not too many colored lights to count. We know various boomerangs and flying VEEs have been seen with dozens if not over a hundred lights. It is hoped that this can be further elucidated in Phase 2. 

  Lets continue with the above second plot. The next few comment categories relate to blinking or flashing or strobed lights. Red and white lights dominate pulsed lights-particularly red lights.

  Next we have two more categories. The first is for "detaching" lights. Note that historically we have heard of many detaching (if not rejoining) red lights. The data identified herein shows indeed that red lights detach however surprisingly we also find orange and white lights detach. It will be appreciated that the number of detachments is very small compared the number of times that particular color light is seen on the craft without detaching. Finally we have rotating or circulating lights. This was mean't to capture rotating beacons (as seen for example on a fire truck) or lights circulating along a typically circular path such as on the rim of a saucer craft. Specifically taking part in rotation or circulation are white lights 80 times, red lights 67 times, orange lights 33 times, green lights 30 times and blue lights 26 times. Phase 2 should better show how many of these craft are triangles/wedges as opposed to discs.
