My husband was taking trash out this evening when he had me come outside as fast as I could. After seeing them, I ran inside to get my camera. We truly do not know what these were, which is why they are called unidentified flying objects, it was exciting, fun and made us extremely curious. We saw them, perhaps 8 to 10 of them at differing times, varried speeds, come from the North West, moving over a tree line. We live near a Joint Force Air Base, as they flew over/near the air base, the lights dimmed completely, we could still follow the movement against the backdrop of the sky. Once we took our eyes off of it/one, we were unable to find it/one again. But if we observed it as it dimmed its lights and followed it visually as it flew past the base, we were able to see them moving. A neighbor out jogging said he had been following them visually as well but thought they were flares.
A car drove by us and stopped at the stop sign saying he had seen them the past few nights. It is important to note, we did not see the lights come back on after we observed them moving over what would be the base.
There wasn't any noise whatsoever, the motions were smooth, almost gliding. Our children came outside as well, our 16 year old daughter describes them as the lit lanterns from the movie Rapunzel.
I did capture several images which upon first glance they appear to be the size of tiny dots in the sky. I zoomed in on them on my computer and loved seeing the different shapes in the extreme close-ups but since I am not computer/image savvy, I/we would love to know what you guys think, does the pixels tell you anything, etc.? Were there any other reports heard of?
