|On Saturday, July 5, 2014, I went to sit on my front porch in Grand Rapids, MI, at about 10:30 p.m.
I was only out for a little while, when I spotted two distinct orange orbs coming from the southwest and traveling north at a quite a high rate of speed. The one nearest, which was still at a high altitude, was brighter. The other one appeared smaller, and was some distance back from the first one. I observed them for about 30 seconds, and then they were gone.
July 25, (2014), I was about five minutes from home, when again, I saw some the same type of lights. I pulled into a parking lot, and counted 7 of them. They were at a fairly low altitude, coming out of the northwest heading southeast. I almost couldn’t believe what I was seeing. But there they were. So, I came home, went out in my backyard with my Brother, and they were still there, moving fairly slow.
We counted about the 9 this time. The last one that appeared was bright red, then was orange. About that time, we an aircraft coming from North to South. It was probably at about 35,000 feet. It looked quite distant relative to the strange lights. After that I did a little research online, and saw similar accounts of the same type of lights. I would not make something like this up. I have nothing to gain from it. I just wanted to report it, and would like to know if there were any other accounts on the objects I saw.
