Blinding light and loud noises, followed by orbs in the sky.

11:00pm, Newport Beach, CA.

My entire house was getting ready for bed, when my Mom called my Brother and me into her bedroom. She claimed she saw an incredibly blinding bright light, followed by these insane loud noises--that I also heard as I entered her bedroom. The sounds were loud enough to fill my entire house, at first I thought it was construction, but it was midnight?

I thought of all possible things it could be, but we had never heard anything like it before. It would just get louder and quieter, I can't even explain the noises, it sounded like muffled harsh rain (not a good example, but I can't describe it?), it was very staticy and so loud, so piercing almost? And only in one area, the noise was coming from a distance from what we could hear. Like around the corner? Very creepy.

The noise would slow down and speed up, and that lasted for about 30 minutes as we watched and listened until it suddenly stopped, we heard soooo many sirens go off after that, and that lasted for 10 minutes, and then th! at also stopped all at once.

Quickly after the noises stopped, we noticed a couple bright orbs in the sky. We noticed one while the noises were happening, but two more appeared brighter. I live by an airport and yes, my first thought was helicopter, plane, jet, etc, ANYTHING but but I have seen those fly overheard before many times. We could all tell there was a difference. It was nothing we've ever seen before in the sky. They would kind of faded in and out in a weird fuzzy way. One of them headed in our direction overhead and we both got a better look at it, I was hanging out of the bedroom window at this point, even in the dark i could clearly see the shape was NOT a plane. It was circular and disc like, it had a few blinking lights, and it continued to move overhead as well as the other ones surrounding it, they all spread out up until a certain point and then they just stopped and stayed there. My mother got a video of one of the one moving towards our direction which I will email to you.

We had no idea what we were seeing but w! e just k new and could feel that it was something different. We all got on our phones and did some research about what we saw, I even tried to see if anybody else had seen or heard things in the area. The things we read and photos we saw were all things we were just looking at. It was the most surreal thing, and I truly believe they were UFOs. Something. But not planes, there was no way. It was so crazy.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and she seemed to us to be quite sincere about her alleged experience. PD))
