Posted: 6/4/2014
Location: Villa Rica, GA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:>5 minutes
FIVE PEOPLE SAW 10 TO 13 FIREBALLS LOOKING LIKE FLAMES THE SIZE OF A SMALL AIRCRAFT WITH NO SOUND FLYING BY AT EVEN INTERVALS.

MYSELF AND FOUR OTHER PEOPLE SAW THESE - THERE WERE AT LEAST 10-13 AND MAYBE MORE BALLS OF FIRE MOVING SLOWLY ACROSS THE TREETOPS ABOVE LAKE TARA, VILLA RICA, GA, AT 9 PM SAT MAY 17TH FROM EAST TO SOUTH... THEY MADE NO NOISE AND IT WAS SILENT WITH A CLOUDLESS DARK SKY AND NO MOON.

STANDING ON MY BALCONY, THE FIREBALLS MOVED AT EVEN INTERVALS APPEARING OUT OF THE TALL PINE TREES ON THE LEFT AND DISAPPEARING BEHIND THE TALL PINES ON THE RIGHT, TRAVELING SLOWLY JUST BEYOND THE BOAT DOCK, THEY APPEARED TO BE ABOUT THE SIZE OF A SMALL AIRCRAFT, BUT NO SOUND EMANATING FROM THEM.

LOOKING LIKE FLAMES, MY CAMERA SHOWS THEM TO BE ROUND. ONE PICTURE WAS TAKEN WITH THE ZOOM. THE OTHER PICTURE ENLARGED ON A COMPUTER SHOWS A FIREBALL WITH WHAT LOOKS LIKE A CAPITAL LETTER "N" IN THE MIDDLE. THREE PEOPLE SAW THESE FROM THIS ADDRESS. A PHONE CALL WAS MADE TO A NEARBY NEIGHBOR AND TWO OTHER WITNESSES AT THAT ADDRESS SAW THEM ALSO.
