Three small unidentified lights or orbs in very close proximity investigate our firework display.

A small group of parents and children were lighting fireworks. The night was clear and I was sitting on the deck just above the group, approximately 20 feet away. This was not an elaborate firework display, but enough to entertain young children. Some of fireworks would shoot up higher than tree line, explode, and dissipate as they were falling.

While watching the fireworks, I noticed there were some lights just above the last explosion that did not fall or dissipate. In fact, they were not moving at all, and remained suspended in the same spot above the children. The unidentified lights, or orbs (3), remained suspended above the area of the fireworks for few minutes, and then moved in a straight line above the deck where I was standing. It was clear they were not fire works. There was no doubt they were moving together with intention and direction.

I yelled out to the group to see if others were watching them. We were amazed and baffled. Then the orbs proceeded! to move over the house, rising up to scale the roof line. Their movement made no sound. They were round, perhaps less than the size of a racket ball, and bright enough to be initially mistaken for light exploding from the fireworks.

A few years ago I shared this with a group of people and one person in the group had also witnessed something similar in the same town during a fire work display.
