Location: Grand Rapids, MI
Shape: Disk
Duration:approx 30 minutes
circular discs in a formation speeded through the sky. 3 discs first, then 5, then 3 again, extremely fast.

At approx 12:00ish am, I was sitting on my computer listening to opera. My fiance was getting ready to go to the the store when I heard him say "holy sh*t" and then he pounded on my window and I ran outside, immediately seeing discs in formation with a reddish goldish soft glow over head heading west . Their were 3 at first in formation, then 5 in formation, then I saw 3 again, then I saw 3 more in formation approx 12:35(I went outside again during typing this). They moved extremely fast. I said we need to report this to someone and I looked online for you guys. The discs were about the quarter of the size of the moon approx. They moved so fast, you had to keep your eyes on them and it seemed like they were only their for a matter of seconds. They sped up after a few seconds whizzing through the sky. During the writing of this email (as mentioned above), I went back outside again and talked to my fiance. At that moment again, I saw 3 more heading north. I called my friend to see if she had a camera to go outside. She did not. My fiance saw alot more than me as he has been outside for over 45 minutes now. He will be making his report after my email.
