|Two bright green objects moving wildly around an orange hazy sphere.
My husband and I were observing the night sky with friends at the Long Lake Recreational Area. At about 10:35 pm, I spotted a large orange sphere on the south end of the lake heading north-northwest. The orange sphere had a hazy glow around it. There were also two bright greenish spheres moving wildy around the orange sphere. Note, I could see this clearly without optical aid. When I used my husband's binoculars, each bright greenish spheres looked like tiny v- shaped objects when they appeared in front of the orange sphere. When the bright greenish objects moved wildly on the sides and top of the orange sphere, they appeared to be spherical. I continued to watch with and without binoculars. There was a bright flash and the orange sphere split into 2. The bottom half appeared to have dropped to the ground and the top half disappeared. One green sphere headed to the north at a fast rate of speed and the other green sphere stayed in the general vicinity of where the orange sphere had been and seemed to move wildly around that area. I continued to watch the green sphere until 11:15 pm. The mosquitos were getting too bad for me so I went to the car. My husband stayed to watch it for a longer period of time.
