I was with a group that was visiting New Orleans. We were waiting near the Caf�� du Monde beigne restaurant across Jackson Square for the bus to take us back to our hotel. I happened to look up and saw two or more pinkish or reddish lights. They seemed to hover, then meandered around, then they disappeared. I asked a fellow traveler with the group what he thought they might be. He apparently jokingly said, "Maybe they're UFOs". I wondered if perhaps they were flares. But I had never seen flares act in that manner. Even with my doubts, I took a video (the video is of VERY poor quality. I turned the camera on it's side and the lights are on the left part of the video). In the intervening months, I was watching shows on the Science Channel and History channel. One in particular mentioned orbs seen at a swamp in Louisiana. I decided to google UFOs over New Orleans. And I was surprised to discover videos on Youtube, first showing sightings on October 24 and 25 of 2013. Then I saw one from the same night as my sighting, October 20 about an hour and a half before mine (mine was about 9:30). I felt I wanted to corroborate especially the October 20,2013 sighting.
