I saw 8 or more bright, large spheres fly over rathdrum, idaho in 1989

21 years ago, when I was 12 years old, I saw approximately 8-9, fiery, bright, orange spheres fly over Rathdrum, Idaho. My sighting was during the day. They traversed from east to west at a fantastic speed. They had the same angular width in the sky as do the sun and moon, and they were bright like fire, and perfectly round. I believe they were less than 5 miles in altitude. They followed one right after the other. I had always believed what I saw to be ball lightening, until recently when I started researching this topic. I have found that the orbs that I saw are being seen all over the world. I don’t know what to do with this info.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD))

((NUFORC Note: Report originally indicated Colorado as the state where the sighting had occurred. However, Rathdrum is in Idaho, we have changed the state, and re-posted the report, as of July 23, 2016. PD))
