|four "fireballs" seen over Captiva Island, FL
((NUFORC Note: This is one of nineteen reports, submitted by the same witness, over the course of seven weeks. The reports are well written, and the witness seems sincere, although we would be surprised if all of the sightings are about authentic UFOs, i.e. alien spacecraft. We cannot be certain, however. PD))
Sighting #16 – May, 2013 – orangeish “fireball” UFOs I forget if I already filed this report a while ago, if so, please bear with me – it is important. Although I did not see these UFOs myself, I felt that I should report them anyway, simply because they relate directly to what I have been seeing for just over a month now.
A friend of mine who witnessed two UFO’s and a UGO (Unidentified Glowing Object) with me off the beach at the South end of Captiva Island on June 26, 2013, called me to tell me that a trustworthy fishing buddy of his saw four “kinda orange-amber,” intense, “fireballs” go directly overhead from where he was shark fishing with other friends. (see “Sighting #4” in “Summary of 10 UFO Sightings” I recently reported to NUFORC).
He said he thought that they were some kind of meteors or fireballs, but there were no trailing flames, and they were traveling horizontally. The four objects were traveling north to south, were “fast” and “high overhead.” Several things are important here: (1) this “fireball” / “orange light” sighting coincides with a report, filed last May with UFO Hunters, of six amber lights, of precisely the kind I and my friend “Carol” saw on June 24; (2) at least six other reports filed with MUFON and NUFORC from this area indicate that these objects have been in this area for perhaps as along as three months, with many of these reports happening on July 4, when I too saw (and reported) them. (3) NUFORC in particular has received recently unusually large numbers of these orange, or Fireball objects throughout the United States.
((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. One of approximately 20 reports from the same source, submitted over the course of a few weeks. PD))
