|Orange orbs flying at 500 feet elevation in a formation. Three in a line and a fourth trailing behind
I was upstairs in bed when my friend came up after viewing late nite news at approximately 11:50 pm on June 28, 2011. He screamed at me from the other upstairs bedroom to come and see these objects. They were four orange orbs flying in formation at a low altitude towards our home..about 500 feet above ground-helicopter flight space for our police helicopters..there were three in a line around 50 yards apart and one behind around 100 yards flying directly behind the middle orb. We rushed downstairs and watched. They executed a 45 degree turn and crossed our yard at a slow speed...never changing formation. They were the size of the full moon about three quarters up in the sky and there was movement inside like moving crystals..sooo hard to describe and the air was disturbed around them..Very scary. There was absolutely no sound from the objects. I went inside and got my camara. I was very excited and fumbling with the camera. I managed to get them in s! ight as they moved over the houses behind my home. I was so upset I forgot to take the flash off. When I took the picture the sky lit up and the back orb went out...just like that...Then as they moved on it came back on more dimly. Unfortunately, the flash blackened out the sky and took a pic of my patio umbrella which was in the side forground of the pic. We called the police, a tv station and I spoke with an air traffic controller at the airport, but at that time no one had reported these things. We later checked chinese laterns, but these things were under control. They stayed in formation and one extinguished the light in response to my camera flash! We have sketches of what we saw.
