They come in the night: Drones — lots of them — flying in precise formations over the Colorado and Nebraska prairie.

“It’s creepy,” said Missy Blackman, who saw three drones hovering over her farm outside Palisade, Neb., on a recent evening, including one that lingered right above her house. “I have a lot of questions of why and what are they, and nobody seems to have any answers.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Since before Christmas, sheriff’s departments in the region have been bombarded with reports of large drones with blinking lights and wingspans of up to 6 feet flying over rural towns and open fields. The drones have unnerved residents, prompted a federal investigation and made international news, even though they may be perfectly legal. And still, they remain unexplained.

A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, Ian Gregor, said the agency had opened an investigation into the sightings in Colorado and Nebraska.

“Multiple F.A.A. divisions and government agencies are investigating these reports,” he said in an email.

Recently proposed regulations would require most drones to be identifiable.
