For the first sighting Me and a friend were outside talking, we were at a new years party and waiting for midnight when I noticed something in the sky way to high to be a firework no strobe just a orb orangish in color from what we saw, and seemed to be moving not fast, not slow, but not normal, and we both knew what we were seeing (now i could have sworn I saw one before but had no witnesses with me and what i observed was after watching it for a while when it disappeared it didn't just vanish it faded)so I turned to my friend and I said if this thing fades away we know exactly what we are looking at, And so it did so our minds were both blown needless to say we went in and told everyone but noone really took us seriously and that was that (I should say the "orb" as i describe it was neither gaining altitude nor descending and didnt have a clear straight path it was just moving ominously)However driving back home as we pulled up into our driveway I! had seen the same light from earlier so of course i was estatic and drug everyone (my fiancee, her mother, and my 17 year old brother) out of the car and into line of sight so they could see it also and thats when I noticed two more accompany the first one i saw and thats when it really got convincing, they were lined up together (all three) in a straight line almost like orions belt moving at a low speed to the southeast, and as the one from earlier had done the first one in this line stopped and began to fade until it wasnt visible, HOWEVER (and this was witnessed by all of us because I forced them to watch) the second and third proceeded on the same path until the second one caught up to where the first one faded then stopped in mid air and waited for the third one to catch up to it at that time seeming to join together and fading at the same time in the exact same place the first one did! At this point my mother in law was actually frightened and went inside I mean all! of us were blown away and there is no doubt what we saw that ! night ai rplanes?! NO helicopters? NO! miltary flares? NO! shooting stars? NO weather balloons? NO! NOTHING we have could just stop in mid air while maintaining altitude perfectly and just vanish! Even still, over cities every aircraft i believe is required to have a strobe which these did not. The way they moved, looked, felt, just.. yea we saw UFOs no doubt in any of our minds! Well thank you guys and i hope this story helps for future reference my eyes are glued on the sky and i will be prepared with a camera next time!
