|Red orbs over Lansing Michigan
Approximately 9:40pm on Saturday, August 1, 2007, I was traveling northbound on Aurelius Road in the vicinity of 84 Lumber when I spotted a round, red light to the east above Cottonwoods Campground. I pulled into the 7-11 on the corner of Aurelius & Jolly, got out of my car, and called to the attendant and customer in 7-11 to come outside and look at the sky. What I saw were 3 round, red objects about 50 feet apart traveling silently to the north in the area bordering Jolly Road to the south, Aurelius Road to the west and Dunckel Road to the east. The objects seemed to keep the same spacing between them, traveled in silence, and were not just merely floating. I would estimate their speed at 20-30 mph. The only description I can think of would be that they looked like red, Chinese globes that one might see in a Chinese restaurant or Chinese ornaments. There was the appearance of flickering light at the bottom of each object that I thought could have been a flame. As we watched, the flickering in the southernmost object disappeared, leaving only two objects that I could see. Those two objects continued north toward Lansing and disappeared from view.
