Sudden appearance of a circling group of 7 or 8 red-orange "orbs."

CIRCLING RED-ORANGE “ORBS” At around 2 a.m., a co-worker and I went up on the roof of the 10-story building we worked swing shift in, taking binoculars along, as we were actually going to look for UFOs.

My co-worker was sure she was seeing a mother ship every night around this time when at home, and I was sure she was seeing an illusion created by looking at a bright star through the screen in her window through her binoculars.

We searched for her mother ship, but of course didn’t find it. We turned to leave, and what we saw nearly gave us heart attacks.

Not having been there only a minute before, at about a 90-degree angle were 7 or 8 “orbs,” I’ll call them, to the north, above the nearby mountaintop. They were in, and remained in, a group, but meandered among each other, mostly in a circular motion.

I call them “orbs,” but really they didn’t seem round through and through. The “apparent” size was about the size a dinner plate would appear if you held it out at arm’s length.

What was strange was that our binoculars couldn’t focus on any of them. All we got was fuzzy light when the binoculars were aimed on them.

After a couple of minutes, the group slowly started off toward the west, the direction of the ocean. As it got further away, a V shape took place of the objects, like a flock of ducks would form.

But here’s the peculiar thing. When the formation was quite a ways away, the binoculars could focus in a little better... and I would swear the objects now resembled creatures with wings flapping slowly... almost like winged dragons...

.and I felt our minds were being played with. And the formation simply moved out of sight...slowly.
