William Ducker was one of the Texas Tech professors who originally saw the famed Lubbock Lights in 1951. Two years before his death, he spoke to fellow Texas Tech professor, Meredith McClain, about the original sighting and subsequent extensive research Ducker conducted. In this interview, Ducker reveals his research concluded without question that the lights they witnessed were migratory geese illuminated by street lights. Ducker also shared his research findings with Edward J. Ruppelt to be included anonymously in The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects (published 1956).
