I have spoken before about my own "alien" encounters. The last one, about a year ago, involved them disappearing in orange-red lights. Months later, I witnessed UFO lights that were exactly the same color along with a friend I was out stargazing with. These crazy self illuminated orbs were doing some pretty weird stuff. I went to a lecture with a ghost researcher talking about his ex-girlfriend who described the orange red lights in relation to alien encounters. All of these things made me curious - are orange red/amber-red lights popularly describe in relation to UFOs and alien? Well, apparently so -
Here are just some accounts -
"I was walking back to our bungalow on the beach in Bang Saphan, Thailand with my girlfriend, after dinner, and looked up into the sky to see if it might begin to rain. As I looked up, an orange-red orb (maybe 3X the size of a night-time star – not very large), “zig-zagged” above VERY quickly and disappeared in the clouds/horizon."
"3 red-orange glowing orbs moving in sky, hovered then moved again, from Wimberly Texas area toward Seguin Texas Area, Disappeared in sky directly above where I and others stood watching!"
"We were sitting outside our beach house looking over the ocean. Initially, we saw one orange/red light that began as a glow and got brighter until fading to dim, and then disappearing completely. It was a circular/sphere shape."
"I saw the same thing in Athens, Texas at approximately 11:40 pm on 12/31/2011. There was a very large red/orange orb that traveled from approximately North/Northwest to South/Southeast. It had no flashing lights on it and no tail. It addition, another light followed it and then seemed to be traveling straight up."
"On the evening of January 25, 1967, Betty Andreasson was in her kitchen at South Ashburnham, Massachusetts. Her seven children, mother, and father were in the living room. At about 6:35 p.m., the house lights suddenly blinked out for a moment. Then, a pulsating reddish-orange light shined in the kitchen window. Betty calmed the frightened children while her father rushed to look out the kitchen window. He saw a group of strange-looking small creatures approaching with a hopping motion. Five small humanoid creatures entered the house, passing right through the wooden door."
Curious to know more, I thought I'd look up what chemicals cause what colors of flame. An orange flame can be caused by calcium, a red flame by strontium, a yellow flame by sodium. Strontium is most often used in cathode ray tubes, calcium chloride can be found in TV screens and fluorescent lights, and sodium can be used in electronics displays for brightness. Put together, these lights and these chemicals would lead one to believe that these lights are the result of purposeful lights utilizing elements that would be most effective for brightness and energy usage.
If we go a step further, we have to ask - where on earth are these things mined? Strontium is mined in Mexico, Spain and China. Calcium is Spain. The biggest producer of sodium is China.
Interestingly, all very UFO-riddled countries.
