My Account: My son 24yrs old and my son’s fiancée 23 yrs old left the house to go to the store, my husband and I laid down to watch a DVD-Lemony Snickets Unfortunate Events. When my son and his fiancee got home they ran up to my bedroom window and yelled “Hey! Come outside and see these UFO’s! There’s three of them – they were very excited and agitated I jumped out of the bed and told my husband to put the movie on pause and ran out the front door, by the time I got out side there was only what looked like one bright star over my house, my son said there were three (they were the size of my fist) and two disappeared… I continued to watch the star and it moved slightly just barley enough to think it was moving then it blew up! It looked like fireworks; a burst of white in a complete circle around the star and then it was further away – you could barley see it in the sky, as it moved further away another appeared beside it and they gradually disappeared. It really shook me up... if I have ever doubted in my life they didn’t exist I know now from the tip of my toes to the top of my head they are “REAL”!! My heart is still racing and I fell like a ton of bricks are sitting on my chest – that’s how much the sighting affected me.

((NUFORC Note: We assume that the witness describes above the launch of a Titan IV missile out of Cape Canaveral, which occurred at 20:55 hrs. (Eastern) on this date. The missile apparently was launched to the northeast, so it was visible along the eastern shoreline of the U. S.. PD))
