Question about a statement made by Ruppelt about the Lubbock Lights

In his book The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects, Ruppelt makes this statement toward the end of the section on the Lubbock Lights:

"Personally I thought that the professors’ lights might have been some kind of birds reflecting the light from mercury-vapor street lights, but I was wrong. They weren't birds, they weren't refracted light, but they weren't spaceships. The lights that the professors saw—the backbone of the Lubbock Light series—have been positively identified as a very commonplace and easily explainable natural phenomenon.

It is very unfortunate that I can't divulge exactly the way the answer was found because it is an interesting story of how a scientist set up complete instrumentation to track down the lights and how he spent several months testing theory after theory until he finally hit upon the answer. Telling the story would lead to his identity and, in exchange for his story, I promised the man complete anonymity. But he fully convinced me that he had the answer, and after having heard hundreds of explanations of UFO's, I don't convince easily."

My question is this, does anyone know if Ruppelt ever went into detail about what this natural phenomena was? Or did the anonymous scientist every come forward?
