At around aprox. 11:30p.m I was shooting pool at a pub about 2 miles from where I live when we received a phone call from a good friend that lives a block away from me told me to walk outside and that there were multiple orange balls of light in the sky. Me and the 2 other guys I was with shooting pool walked outside to the parking lot but failed to see anything and went back inside. We talked to Randy ( person who called us ) again after going back inside and he said they were more of them apearing and that some of them were hovering in the south. I was so anxious to see this that I jumped on my motorcycle without even paying my bar tab. When I got home I was finally able to see the bright orange balls in the sky. I ran inside to wake the rest of the family up and they too witnessed the orange balls of light. We must have witnessed up to 5 of the objects in the sky at once, sometimes they appeared to be hovering and then would move slowly from the west to the east coast ( cocoa beach florida )up to 20 of them were witnessed. The new ones would come as if someone turned on a light in the sky and once they got far on the east coast out of are atmosphere they apeared to turn light blue almost like a star but continued to fly in mysterious patterns. I called the police to see if there were any other reports of strange orange balls of light in the sky or if the military was testing and they had no answer but yet after talking to my friend Randy that called me he said before I got home from the pub he and his wife and kid witnessed military jets chasing the balls of light. My friend was able to get a couple still frame photos and are in possetion right now. I am really lost for words I have never seen anything like that in my life and I am even a pyrotechnic. Please let me know if you need anymore details, Thanks.
