At least 25 orange and red fireballs fly over New Bedford, MA, USA

On Sunday night, October 11, 2011 my family and I saw at least 25 alien fireballs fly over our house in New Bedford, MA.

It was an unusually warm night with very clear skies.

At 7:42 PM, my son was driving near a local Park when he saw five fireballs in the night sky. These dazzling fireballs displayed complex patterns of symmetrical movement. Although he was only a few blocks away, he immediately phoned us so we went out into the street to observe it. Sure enough, the objects were flying over our house in single file and they made no sound.

A new fireball would appear just over the Western horizon about every 30 seconds. Each appeared as an orange and red fireball. The size of these fireballs was a little smaller than the size of your pinky’s fingernail if you stretched your arm out in front of you.

They moved past us and onto their rendezvous point just above the eastern horizon where groups of two or three of them would congregate and then disappear together as a group. One of the fireballs changed color to white and merged with an orange one at their rendezvous point. The last ship disappeared at about 8:10 PM.

We did not get a picture or a video, but we found plenty of videos and pictures of these same objects on the internet.
