Location: Gloucester, MA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:1 hour
a series of bright spheres moved slowly, one-by-one, in a southerly direction,away from a stationary sphere

While standing on the Ipswich Bay side of Cape Ann, looking towards Crane Beach, we saw one bright sphere about 3 times the size of Venus that hovered low over the horizon, at about the level of Venus. Suddenly, there were 2 spheres, side-by-side. The more southern one slowly drifted at a constant level and speed in a Southerly direction. The original sphere did not move, but another sphere appeared beside it and followed in the same path as the second sphere. This continued for about an hour. We lost count, but there must have been at least 10 spheres that followed the same pattern. There were usually 2-3 spheres moving before they were lost to our sight due to trees. Only one sphere started to move in a more northerly direction, before turning to circle around the original sphere and then continuing in a southerly direction. A few of the spheres had a reddish hue, some seemed to fade and decrease in size.
