Location: Asheville, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:4 hours
star sized color changing lights moving in weird patterns, white and orange balls falling from sky.

I was outside grabbing my phone charger out of my car when in my peripheral vision I noticed a bright white ball flying through the air and then swiftly falling to the ground leaving clouds of fog behind (the rest of the sky was completely clear). I ran inside to grab my 3 friends thinking a plane had crashed. When we all got out side we noticed while looking up at the sky we saw 30-40 star-sized lights changing colors, some blue to green, some blue to orange. As we observed the sky we noticed that the lights we saw were darting randomly around the sky like nothing we had ever seen. Zig-zagging and moving up and down. Also shooting beams of light through the sky. We stood out there watching them do this for three hours.

Later after going inside I noticed blinking white lights from a window coming from the same place the white orb was seen. I went out side and saw two orange orbs side by side float up from behind a tree line, move about 500ft right and then quickly fall to the ground.
