|Four Orbs in one object flying above Kalamazoo
I was swimming in our pool, with 8 kids, when we sighted brilliant flickering lights in the NE direction at maybe 3/4 of a mile away at a height of 2,000' to 3,000' possibly.
It was much bigger than any helium balloons given at parties. It appeared to be 4 circles bound together flashing green and sliver lights individually.
I ran into the house to get my glasses and my camera. It continued a slow ascent away from us to the SE direction. It would flicker from an almost imperceptible light until it flared up again like the light a star would give after dark. A passing personal jet flew underneath it.
I have worked for Cessna and Boeing. I have spent a lot of time around McConnell AFB and the object was higher than military aircraft and commercial aircraft. I’d estimate it at 7 ½ miles high. It than reversed course at an extremely slow speed and came back to us in a NNW heading until it was straight above our heads and it disappeared.
Balloons? I don’t know what it was except it was unusual.
