several orbs observed by 2 witnesses.
2 observers, husband and wife, simultaneously observed several (7-10) hovering orbs in the vast night sky of different sizes, colors and locations. The brightest was the furthest south location, the 2nd brightest which was multicolored, was the furthest north and west. There were about 7 others which were much smaller and white appearing in between the distance of the aforementioned 2.
The sighting lasted about 10-15 minutes as we went inside while they were still present. There was one large orb which was solid white (the southern most) in color. Most of the rest were tiny in comparison and appeared further away. There was one furthest away from the largest white one which appeared multicolored. After viewing with the naked eye for about 2 minutes, my wife got binoculars and we could see the surface of these orbs were not one solid light, but much smaller lights making up their mass, reminiscent of an LED flashlight or "golf ball" dimple configuration. Upon viewing the multicolored 2nd largest "orb", the shape was clearly a triangle which seemed to have changing color lights. Some red/orange, green, yellow and white. There was no discernible movement of the orbs, they were just hovering in one spot. We went inside after viewing them for approximately 15 minutes. I took 3 poor quality photos with my phone before going inside.
I sent a report to MUFON and just before downloading 3 photos, I decided to go outside and see if they were still there. The largest white one was gone, and didnt see but a couple of the much smaller ones. However, the multicolored triangular one was still in the same location and one of the other smaller ones was now larger and appeared closer and it appeared to change colors as well as very slowly moving from south to north. I didnt have the binoculars with me so I couldn't see detail.
