ORBS OVER SALEM OREGON MAY 2021

I have lived in Salem Oregon for the last five years almost exactly on the 45th parallel near Portland Rd & Lancaster Dr NE. On several occasions I witnessed various types of Unidentified Areal Phenomenon but never had a camera with me to document such sights. Often, I see these things after 9pm and later.

On December 4, 2017 I saw a white sphere moving silently & slowly a couple hundred feet above me in a Southern Direction and as it moved higher into the atmosphere disappeared. I was awestruck because it was so close.

On Wednesday evening, April 14, 2021, I stepped out onto my back porch so the dog could go out and was looking up at the stars in a Southern Direction from my home and saw some type of craft drop 3-4 orange spheres (one at a time) and as each one dropped it flew off & disappeared. I had never seen anything like that before and did not believe them to be flares as they vanished almost immediately.

On Tuesday & Wednesday night, May 18 & 19, 2021, I was outside at various times both nights witnessing small white orbs dancing about in a playful manner, swirling around & racing each other back and forth through the clouds. Just when you would look at one, a slight flash of light would occur in another location flying about in the same manner. It did not matter which direction I looked toward East, West, South or North - there were I estimate hundreds (not clustered) of orbs at various heights and distances all over the sky. That Wednesday night (05/19/2021) around 9:30 I was standing in front of my house and saw a plane flying from North to South along the normal flight path over my home and saw another “craft” with just one solid light under it. It almost looked like a helicopter with a search beacon of some sort. The plane was much higher above this other craft with the very bright light headed just over my head and as they passed I couldn’t quite make out the type of a! irplane but thought it appears similar to the Stealth Bomber a triangular dark color but it went so fast I wasn’t clear what I was seeing. I saw my neighbor sitting in his car and rushed over to bang on his window to see what I was viewing. The airplane continued on its normal route and the craft with the light appeared to be speeding faster in an effort to catch up or pace the other plane when suddenly it veered on at an abnormal angle and disappeared. My neighbor thought both were airplanes, but I have never seen a plane fly at an angle such as this one did. To my amazement during the day on Thursday May 20, 2021 I saw the same orbs darting in & out of the clouds. It was shocking and somewhat difficult to see them with daylight present, but they were there. We had brief blue sky, some thunder/hail clouds, and some rain. I was able to document (as best I could) these orbs at various heights and directions around my home location. I did contact the National UFO Hotline and ! spoke briefly to Director Peter Davenport about what I thought! could b e ball lightning or some highly strange unidentified flying orbs. At his suggestion I make this report and have emailed him the videos I took. I am somewhat frightened now that the Men in Black might come visit me, lol. I believe these strange events witnessed are happening more and more frequently and an advocate of FULL Disclosure. CONFIDENTIAL NAME-SalemOR
