Fireball in the sky behind the clouds???? Apparently the fighter jets saw it too?????

My husband and I were on our way home and I saw a BRIGHT light looked kind of like a fireball behind a cloud. I pulled over and told my husband to look. We then saw "it" light up another 5 to 6 times. There was what appeared to be a small jet circling the light.My husband describes it as a huge flare behind the clouds.The light went away and the plane continued to circle where we had seen the light.We got home and within 10 minutes there were fighter jets flying around. Its now an hour and 20 minutes later and I can still hear the jets every few minutes going overhead.

((NUFORC Note: A description of this event can be found on the NUFORC homepage. PD))

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with these witnesses on several occasions, and they seemed quite sincere to us. We do not know what these witnesses, and others, observed that night, but the objects may have been flares released from military jet fighters. However, all the witnesses, when queried about this possibility, insisted that the lights were not flares, that they maneuvered relative to one another, and moved across the sky in a fashion that seemed not compatible with drifting flares. We include below one of the witness's several follow-up communications with NUFORC:


Have you received any more reports about tuesday night??
I've heard ALOT of people saying they saw things.(a woman I work with did)
I spoke with ((deleted--witness from Gilford, NH) tonight and he's going to put an ad in our local pennysaver looking for witnesses and I'm putting an ad in the plymouth record enterprise newspaper asking for witnesses and directing them to your site.
We KNOW what we saw was NOT military. Absolutely NO WAY! I believe the follow up reports you received were bogus.I think they were reported to get us to change our mind.
Please if you can keep me informed on the sighting here.
Thankyou so much ,
