Duration:5 to 10 seconds
|3 reddish ovals in early morning over maui.
This sighting happened at aproximately 4:00 A.M. on the morning of November 10th, 2010.
It happened in the skies above Kahului, Maui, Hawaii.
I had just left my job and was waiting for the first bus to catch to my home. I was lying in the grass adjacent to the Queen Ka'ahumanu shopping center parking lot, which also serves as the bus station hub, awaiting the first buses arrival.
I was just admiring the stars. I had seen two shooting stars earlier in the evening so when this event took place my first thought was, " how odd to see THREE shooting stars at once and all heading in the same direction, parallel to one another." I quickly realized that was not what I was seeing however when the three reddish/orange lights veered from my view to the right at the same time.
My second thought was perhaps they were three birds, as I could not easily discern the size and distance of the objects against the starry black sky. I thought this because they were completely silent as they flew. I readily dismissed this theory however as the had no wing "flapping" movement that I would easily have detected were they birds.
The three objects moved swiftly across the sky and were lost to my sight as the flew to the right of where I was lying on the ground and I lost track of them as they flew toward the well lit city lights.
It did not appear that these objects were lights from a single object as I remember detecting the night sky between them as they quickly passed directly overhead.
I have never before seen Unidentified Flying Objects and seeing this really got my skin tingling.
I have no idea what I saw...but whatever it or they were, was out of the ordinary. Perhaps they have something to do with the military/observatory being built atop Haleakala Crater. I would be very interested in knowing if any others saw this phenomena.
