UFOs on Independence Day: Orange spheres reported to MUFONby Cherlyn Gardner Strong on Jul. 05, 2010, under General Paranormal, Life, UFO News, UFOs
MUFON’s live event report feed displays the last 25 reported suspected UFO sightings on a map on their website. Interestingly, persons in the eastern portion of the country have reported similar phenomena over the last couple of days: red/orange objects in the sky. Timely for the Independence Day holiday when many eyes are turned to the sky.
MUFON case number 24190 submitted by a Streamwood Illinois resident is worth a read. The phenomena was witnessed by more than a dozen persons.
The first object flew in from the SW going east by NE. I would say at a height of 2000-3000 ft up.Air speed was 300 -400 MPH based on what a single engine plane appears to be flying over head. It was two three times faster then that. No noise was heard. In about 30 seconds we could not see it anymore. I contacted the local police department via 911 and asked if anyone else was reporting what we where seeing. They stated no. About two to three minutes later, another light came in from the south and turned and followed the path of the first one. I called the police again and said we just saw another light exactly like the first one. They asked if we wanted an officer dispatched and we said yes. Again, we heard no sound from the object. Hot air balloons don’t turn 90 degrees like the second object.
Persons reporting the phenomena deny that the objects were fireworks-related. Perhaps it’s ball lightning? Whatever it is, it is certainly interesting.
