Approach Direction: east

Departure Direction: west

Witness Direction: west

Description: As we were driving home as we topped a small hill there were at least seven objects glowing orange in the western sky. The were in formation like a five on a dice with two fling in front. They appeared to be stars at first then I noticed them moving to the west and they all began to come into view. They glowed orange and made no noise. Based upon the rate the moved out of my sight I would say two or three thousand feet in altitude. It was a curiuos site. I lived next to an airforce base for two years in south georgia and have seen may night flyovers with afterburners, this was not that.. Tim Anderson

Follow-up Report from Brian Vike:

I appreciate your quick response to my email and would be curious as to some of the details of the other sightings that night.

Tim could you please tell me how long the whole event lasted for ?

We viewed the objects moving across the sky for about one to two minuets until they went across the horizon and behind trees out of my view.

While you observed the objects, did they stay in exactly the same formation all through the sighting ?

They did stay in formation during the entire time.

Can you please tell me what the weather conditions were that night ?

The weather was clear stary night, a bit cool.

Did any of the objects make any sudden movements ?

They made no changes in direction or speed.

Form your location, could you give an estimated guess on how large they were ? (example, pea, penny, dime size ?)

Penny size

Were there any other witnesses with you at the time of the sighting ?

My girlfriend saw them as well, first from in the car and then when we got home we watched them continue across the sky.

Did any of the objects change color at any time ?

No color change just a twinkle look, they were orange kinda like fire.

Was there a trail or tail following each of the objects ?

I observed no trail.

Tim is it possible to do up a drawing of what you witnessed and send it along to me through email ?

The shape appered to be a bright orange twinkling light in this formation

Looked like a five of a dice with two more out front, could have been more as the front two were at the very end of my viewing area when i saw them the formation covered what seemed to be a very large portion of the western sky. I assumed altitude was a couple of thousand feet, just because we came up the back side of a hill before we began to see them, i felt if they were higher I would have been able to see them sooner.

if you can add anymore detail for your sighting this would be most helpful. It looks like you were not a lone in seeing these objects. reports from Canada and other parts of the United States came in to different groups reporting seeing what you did, or a bit different.

If you would be kind enough to answer the questions it may help in finding an answer for what you witnessed. Plus if there is any other detail that you may have left out, would you please pass the information a long as well.

I hope this info is helpful; please keep me informed and if you could give me more details on the other sighting that would be great. Thanks, Tim
