Duration:18 mins.
One main cbject and seven smaller objects that came out of the main object.

June 9th 2006 at about 8:10pm I was laying in a hammock in my back yard when I noticed a bright light about 50 degrees up from the horizon. There was a lot of airplane traffic that evening but the object was much higher in the sky , and it was not moving just sitting there. I watched this for about 5mins (naked eye),Thinking this thing will move shortly and Ill know what it is. After the 4 or 5 mins I was perplexed and ran inside to get my (deepspace and on a tripod)binoculars. I got them setup and focused in on the object. The object was a perfect sphere, glowing orange in the center and white around the edge. I watched it for about 6mins. and it didnt move,then out of the left side of the object three smaller white spheres appeared and in about 1 min.after that three more white spheres dropped out of the bottom. The objects on the left side were evenly spaced apart, at first so were the bottom objects but then the middle obeject moved out to the left forming a triangle under the main object. Then a small black oblong item dropped just below the triangle of spheres.These things remained this way for several mins.Then the small objects to the left of thr main object started to slowly move away. At this time the main object started to glow abit brighter.Now heres the kicker... The main object then appeared to blowup (for as far away as this was it looked like a massive explosion, it almost filled up the field of view of the binoculars)But then I noticed that it looked more like steam than smoke. Through this steam cloud I could barely see the main object and it looked like it was seperating within this vapor cloud. In an instant all objects were gone,the cloud acted like a vortex and everything was just gone.Nothing fell from the sky. There were no clouds that day , clear as a bell. I am only about 15 mins from Greensboro International airport,I have not checked with them yet to see if they picked it up on radar. I also saw this object two more times within a two week period of the first ! sighting and have a witness on one of the other sightings. About me, I am 50 years old I own a recording studo and have been an amature astronomer for about 40 years and have seen countless meteors,three comets,almost anything you can think of but nothing like this.
