FIVE ORANGE, PURPLE, AND COBALT AND WHITE BALLS OF LIGHT FLASHED ACROSS NIGHT SKY.

I WENT OUT AT NIGHT TO TAKE PHOTOS OF OUR CACTUS PLANT THAT ONLY BLOOMS AT NIGHT. THERE WERE FIVE BRIGHT, COLORFUL BALLS OF LIGHT FLASHED ACROSS THE NIGHT SKY. THEY ALL LEFT TRAILS, AS IF TRAVELING AT A HIGH RATE OF SPEED. ONE BALL WAS BRIGHT ORANGE, ONE VIOLET, ONE WHITE W/COBALT HUE, ONE WAS A DIMMER/DARKER SHADE OF ORANGE (AS IF FARTHER AWAY, AND NOT AS BRIGHT), AND ANOTHER WAS SORT OF GRAY AND DIMMER AS WELL.

SEVEN PHOTOGRAPHS WERE TAKEN IN IMMEDIATE, RAPID SUCCESSION, BUT ONLY THE FIRST PHOTO REVEALED THESE BALLS OF LIGHT. THE OTHER SIX PHOTOS JUST SHOWED A DARK, SKY W/NO STARS. THESE LIGHTS MUST HAVE BEEN TRAVELING AT AN EXTREMELY HIGH RATE OF SPEED BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT VISIBLE WITH THE NAKED EYE, AND I ONLY SAW THEM IN MY PICTURES ONCE DEVELOPED.
