Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 seconds
6 very large moon-sized white orbs arranged as 2 separate triangles appeared close by and moved silently toward the ground

My 22 yr old Nephew and I were standing in his backyard searching for the source of a couple of bangs heard in the yard and as soon as we looked in the direction of the noise we witnessed 6 very large orbs (about the size of a full moon) in the form of two triangles moving silently across the skyline in a single file line, heading towards the ground as if it were making a crash landing.

We lost site of the two groups of bright white orbs and assumed that, though they were completely silent, they couldn't have been more than 100 feet away. There was no sound as we braced ourselves for the sound of impact. The lights were very crisp and bright, and we got a perfectly clear view of their movement toward the ground.

I was so frightened upon seeing this that I honestly feared for my life at the time and could barely bring myself to stay outside to witness whatever may have come after these objects landed.

We often see stationary blinking lights scattered over top of the mountains that surround the area, and after seeing this object we noticed at least 10 of these stationary star-like lights move around the sky toward the strange orbs we just watched, as well as several air planes all headed the same direction. (I realize they may have been headed to an airport and not the orbs we saw but the orbs were most definitely not landing at an airport, as no such air port exists where the orbs headed)

I am by no means crazy, nor is my nephew, and seeing these lights changed my life forever as I TOO now have witnessed something truly paranormal and not of this world and I can undeniably say that this was no hoax, and in no way could it have been explained by swamp gas, weather balloons, flares, or airplanes.

We ARE near Camp David where there may be government testing but I can't fathom what kind of man made craft could have produced this kind of sighting.
