Shape: Light
Duration:~90 minutes
20-30 multicolored fast moving orbs seen over Akron, Ohio.

At approx. 21:30 eastern time, I was watching TV. The TV room in my house faces to the west. All of a sudden, I started seeing very bright multicolored lights, at first just one at a time, moving from west to northeast quickly. I mentioned to my wife if she had noticed this? Her comment was it may just be a reflection off our gutter from passing cars down the street.

As the time passed, I kept seeing more and more of these bright, fast moving, multicolored orbs following the same flight path and quickly ran outside for a closer look. Once I got outside, I noticed a steady stream of the orbs, sometimes in groupings of four or five at a time, moving across the sky. Now our weather here in Akron, while cold, was perfect. Crystal clear skies last when I observed this amazing event. Another thing I noticed while i was on the phone with the police was a passing commercial airliner, which was moving in a northwesterly direction over me. I could see and hear the marker lights as well as the engine. I also clearly heard the passing traffic, I live a block away from a main street here in Akron.

As the orbs passed, they were completely silent! and I noticed they were relatively low in the sky. As they traveled through the sky at times they seemed not to far from the top of near by buildings. The last orbs trailed off around 22:15
