Luminous Bright Orange Lightballs Traveling in a Pattern in Stafford VA

Taking place in Stafford, VA from approximately 6:33 P.M until 6:36 P.M, there were roughly eight to ten very bright luminous orange balls of light in the sky. Traveling at a constant and steady speed, many of them broke off into groups and continued to travel in separate directions until just disappearing without a trace. For a brief moment, they appeared stationary but as they became more visible it was obvious that they were traveling at a considerable speed. Way faster than a helicopter, but it made absolutely no sound. It was clearly in sight and would have made sound if it were a familiar object but remained silent and clearly visible until disappearing one by one. Some appeared to be very close to each other, almost touching but moved uniformly and at a steady speed. Appearing in different groups and formation, the bright orange lights stretched across the sky traveling some in the same direction and some in different directions all traveling from the Northeast. All of them gradually disappeared heading Southwest checked the local weather immediately after and visibility was 10 miles 46 degrees wind northeast 4 mph (groundlevel).


((NUFORC Note: The witness also called our Hotline, and added that the lights were not blinking. PD))
