9 sfere di colore rosso arancio, avvistate verso l'eur.

Era sera, ore 22:35. Ero uscito per prendere mio figlio a lavoro , quando all'improvviso mi colpì il fatto che in cielo c'erano delle strane luci, di color rosso e arancio, avevano una forma sferica, su per giù a venti metri di altezza, cercando di contarle costatai che erano 9. Le sfere erano di un metro circa. Nel cercare di seguire le sfere, man a mano ne spariva una nel nulla. Una scese di colpo e cercai di accostarmi con la macchina, avendo il cellulare pensai di riprendere il tutto con un filmato ma preso dall'attimo non feci in tempo, la sfera si avvicinò a me a 5 metri, la vidi distintamente, la sua forma era completamente sferica con luci che dal vicino potevo notare bianche rosse e arancio al suo interno. A primo impatto sembravano piccoli satelliti.. Cercai intento di rincorrerla con la macchina ma dopo poco sparì! Mai vista una cosa del genere!

"9 spheres of reddish-orange color, sighted around (unknown word - cannot find in any dictionary; ?typo))


It was evening at 22:35. I had gone out to pick up my son at work, when all of a sudden I was struck by the fact that there were strange lights in the sky which were reddish-orange and spherical in shape; and at approximately 20 meters altitude. Attempting to count them, I ascertained there were 9. The spheres were about a meter in diameter. As I was trying to follow the spheres, gradually one of them disappeared completely. One suddenly descended and I attempted to approach it in the car, hoping to get all on my cell phone as a short video; but before I could do so, the sphere approached me to within 5 meters at which point I was able to see distinctly that its shape was completely spherical with lights internally which, from up close, I was able to see were white, red, and orange. My first impression was that they appeared to be little satellites I was intent on running after it with the car, but after a brief period it disappeared. I have never seen such a thing!"
