Location: East Tawas, MI
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|New type of aircraft?
It appears as if there were 3 crafts moving roughly SW. The sound was what I initially noticed because we are not near a large airport.
The lights were bright orange and looked like a fireball. One of the crafts had the burst of fire, traveled a distance, another fireball, traveled a distance and a third fireball. It almost looked like it was "using thrusters" (to use a sci-fi term).
The bursts of light were about 10 times brighter than you would see on a commercial aircraft when its white light is blinking.
