Duration:7 minutes
Viewed 4 slow moving orange-ish orbs on new years eve moving from E to W until they disappeared on the horizon

Went outside with my boyfriend on New Year's Eve at around 12:55PM to light some fireworks to celebrate the new year. While picking up the firework remnants, I noticed my boyfriend was staring up at the sky. There were fireworks, but when they stopped, four slow moving orange-ish orbs moving from east to west traveled across the sky. There were no flashing lights like a normal plane, and seeing fireworks just moments before, it was VERY clear these were not fireworks of any kind.

We watched them for quite a while and they did not dissipate-- they simply traveled until they were out of view. For the most part they seemed spherical in nature, but if you focused closely they did appear to have some elongated part on the front. A man down the path we were on also noticed them.


((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS))

My name is ((deleted)). I submitted a sighting about 10 minutes ago. I made an error in the submission--the number of witnesses was 3, and the duration of time was 7 minutes--not the other way around.

Sorry for the error! Just wanted to mail to make sure all the information is accurate!
Thanks again!
