Overflight of two firey orbs.

((NUFORC Note: One of six sightings from same source, submitted over the course of two months. PD))

Once more, please refer to the past Milford reports from this year for context on this sighting.

Sunday, Gulf Beach, only a mild -3mph breeze from the NNW. Intermittent high clouds. Sunset about 6:40 PM.

First: 7:06 PM. Through windshield of parked car noticed a very bright low flying object approaching from the west (265 degrees), just above the treeline and shoreline houses. Because of its familiar color, lack of blinking port/starboard/tail lights and peculiar gliding movement I immediately attempted to video record this aircraft. Moving away from street/car lights to get a better view of it, and to project a 5 mW green laser at it, this object soon displayed itself as a typically flame-like oval. It traveled from the west into the SE, gaining altitude as it diagonally crossed the gulf. The laser's 2,000 ft effective range did not appear to paint it, nor did it respond to the flash. Within 2.5 minutes it blinked out in the SE sky. Estimated speed = 45 mph.

Second: About 2 minutes after the disappearance of the first object another firey object suddenly popped up, either just between the trees exactly 270 degrees west - or possibly from the opposite beach itself! This happened too rapidly for me to accurately judge its origination point. As it moved towards me, lower and more slowly than the previous UFO, I was able to aim the laser directly at it throughout its entire 2.5 minutes of travel in a trajectory similar to the previous UFO: upwards and into the SE sky. No response, and nothing noticably reflected by the laser beam. This object similarly blinked out about 120 degrees SE at 7:13 PM.

Short MP4s recorded.
