Quote from the article:

“The lights, described as red, white and green and about the size of a star, were sighted about 10 p.m. and tracked for several minutes by radar.

‘All I can tell you from here is what’s in the log,’ said Pinecastle’s Lt. Commander John L. Sullivan.


‘From what I can gather, the radar picked something up and it departed the area very quickly.’ ”


And Master Chief Thomas O’Neal says in the article that the Warfare Range also had a rash of UFO sightings one or two years before the 14 May 1978 UFO incident.

29°06'57.00" N 81°44'10.00" W
