|Multiple orange balls moving across the sky
While attending a family backyard evening BBQ with several adults and some younger nieces and nephews present, the oldest nephew stepped out from the house to back yard where we were gathered and stated “hey, what it that?”
When we all turned to him he was pointing towards the northwest part of the sky and what we saw was a orange glowing ball shape traveling from west to east and slightly north of our perspective. It stayed visible for approximately 30 seconds and appeared to get smaller in size as it moved towards the east as if also moving away from us.
About five minutes later one of the adults yelled out “there are more of them”. This time there were 3 of the same objects, at about the same distance (about the size of a ping-pong ball at arms length), traveling in single file with about 3 ping-pong ball size spaces between them. However this time they moved more in a southern direction then made a wide turn and headed north. Staying visible and getting ! smaller until they were out of sight. From the time we first saw this group of 3, until they were out of sight, lasted 60 seconds at most.
One of the adults called the local sheriffs dept to report what we had seen, the dept took his info and noted they were receiving other calls about the same thing at that time. He also called the local TV news station to report what we had seen; they also noted other calls referring to like sightings.
This took place on a clear night, no clouds, no wind, no trees or houses in the view and no sounds were heard.
((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD))
