8 red burning orbs from south to north, below the cloud cover.

First red orb spotted at 21:30, 10/06/2018 due south, rising at a speed about twice that of an air craft. Second orb became visible about a minute later. Both orbs remained visible as they flew directly overhead, heading north and disappeared into the north horizon. No sound was noticeable and remained in view 4-5 minutes. Neither of the original two had much of a trail, but one had visible break off like a flare that burned up within a second or two. Less than a minute after the first two disappeared, the third and the fourth came into view from the same southern location. One was larger than the first ones and had a noticeable tail to it. These two also released items that quickly burned up.

There was complete overcast with no visible stars or a moon, so these were very low in our atmosphere. In total, there were 8 and they spread out into longer intervals between. Eventually only one in view at a time. The whole event lasted about 40 minutes. Some never made it to the far horizon, but at least 3/4 of the way. The ones that didn’t flickered out without any debris.

There were four of us that witnessed this and none of us have seen anything like it.




NUFORC Note:
