    I saw 5 moving in a line after watching fireworks around 11:00 pm central time in Missouri. Is there any explaination because I am the biggest skeptic but this is unexplainable! No sound and they seemed to be low.

    No explanation yet.
    Lots more sightings.

    Previous UK reports like these have been credited to Chinese Lanterns, but the fact that these are so spread out rules out lanterns floating around.

    We also saw something very similar a bit after 12:00 am July 4th, in Lexington Ohio which is in north central Ohio. We saw a formation (but only about 7 lights) until they faded out, then also one larger ball of light that traveled across the sky, then stopped. It stayed stationary as it got smaller and winked out.
    I’m glad we are not the only ones!

    I saw one bright orange light in burlington county south new jersey. I actually pulled over to try to cell phone video it (no results) very very bright, made a quick 90 degree turn then left extremely fast. Unlike any plane I have ever seen. The orange light was incredibly bright but no blinking, almost seemed a little blurry.

    Yes!!! My whole family was out in the yard in Bethlehem, PA watching the fireworks and saw these too. First we saw one then about 10 minutes later another following the same direction and this kept happening for about an hour or so. At some points there were more than one at a time. So glad we weren’t the only ones. I’ve told other family and friends about it and I think they thought I was losing it!

    I have read reports of these from coast to coast, all yesterday. I saw one myself last night. The obvious answer is a new type of firework other than a Chinese Lantern.

    My boyfriend and I saw these lights too!! We saw the first red one at 7:30PM here in Bothell, Washington.

    At 12:30AM we were sitting on the back deck after all the fireworks had stopped, and we saw another red light coming over the horizon. It was a big red dot, although I could see a yellowish glowing center to it. The red seemed like an aura, or like it was foggy..almost pixelated. As my boyfriend ran upstairs to get his cell phone to take a pic, a second orange dot came from the same place on the horizon and followed the same path of the red.

    We only got a picture of it as it was farther off in the distance, but the lights were flying very slowly, very calmly and I did not see any change in direction. I watched the lights travel from the horizon, across the top of our house, and into the distance until they faded out. There is no way this was a lantern, and it was moving much too quickly to not have had an engine.

    My first instinct is these were fireworks, but they were moving much faster than the wind (at least at ground level or at the level of the city fireworks).
    They were moving pretty fast and seemed to stay in “formation”. I remember that there was a trail of smoke from the city fireworks earlier drifting off to the east fairly slowly. These were moving from North to South. It is possible that the winds at that level were moving much faster in a different direction. They also didn’t come from the direction of the city fireworks. If these were citizen fireworks I want some!

  13. trisha

    yes, i saw those too, we were watching the fireworks in bethlehem in pa and then when they were over i looked over behind the bethlehem steel factory there were these lights about like 20 or so in formation slowly moving up diagonally, it couldnt have been anything else, and then they reappeared behind the otherside of the building and slowly vanished, it was weird im glad im not the only one who saw this

  14. trisha

    but after looking up chinese laterns this could explain what I saw also

  15. yes ..i saw one in Tamaqua, PA ..but researched it and found out i only saw 1 or 3 in a triangle form seen in another state … i have a few videos too

    july 4th 2010 we observed 7 orange balls of light appear in the sky one after the other from lowell massachusetts appearing from the west and traveling southeast as one ball appeared and disappeared another ball appeared and disappeared in succession i have studied ufo phenomenon for 30 years these were not fireworks or aircraft after 30 years i know the difference seen similar occurance at salisbury beach massachusetts in 2006 orange balls of light dove out of the sky into the fireworks display then rose back up into the sky and disappeared i believe it is their intention to give those of us that know better a sign that they are there

  24. john

  25. stephanie

    same thing was seen over nashville tn 2010 red orbs droped into the stratosphere headed north hovered over old hickory lake cops on the lake shot their spotlights at it and moved away red orbs went in a northwesternly directions cops reported this but probably not readily available to public also these orbs were huge and lasted 15 to 20 minutes coming in succession also these objects were at 7000 ft traveling at jet speed until shooting up into space at high rate of speed this is a recent report not readily available on utube uploads are in the making also these objects became stationary over old hickory dam in nashville for aproximatly 5 minutes pulsating blood red with lines of flux throughout its like they wanted you to see them also ive researched firework tech and nothing comes close except flares from military aircraft but this becomes non acceptable after coarse change slowing down stopping then shooting off at relative mach7 north and up into space please relay any video of this event to my email

    I am from N.E. Pennsylvania. At approx. 9:30 P.M. enroute to see a fireworks display, we noticed an orange/reddish light in the sky. It seemed to shoot up over the trees and then take on a straight course in the sky. I at first thought that it was a plane’s engines that were on fire b/c I had never seen that color before. Being that I live close to an airport, it is not unusual for me to see planes in the sky. This one was definitely different. I really expected to hear on the news that a plane’s engines malfunctioned and were on fire. One of the children that were with us asked me what I thought it was. I jokingly said that if I were to say it was anything, I would say it was an “Unidentified Flying Object”. We laughed about it until my brother called me and told me that people across the U.S. and Canada saw the same thing that we did on the 4th of July. Very weird, but intriguing. I saw some other posts on other websites saying they were “sky lanterns”. Not sure, what they are or why there would be some many of them in the sky nationwide on one particular night. ?????

  28. […] Since July 3rd of this year, we have had so many reports of unidentified orange balls of light (we like to call them ORBLs) that we’ve lost track. Actually, dating back to July 4rd 2009 over Bethlehem Pennsylvania. […]

    LOWELL MASS on the night of july 4th 2010 around 11 pm,my roommate and l saw 9 orange balls flying from west to east in some kind of formation and one seemed to be accelerating from the back and quickly taking the lead and disappearing in the sky, the rest followed it we also saw some of our neighbors looking at it and they all agreed that they have never seen anything like it before. they were silent, unique, slowly moving and considerably big

  30. Christine

    We saw them last night too.. around 8 pm. They moved slowly up to into the sky and then disappeared. Weirdest thing I have ever seen.

    My Fiance and I just saw something similar to what these people described. An orange ball of light traveled slowly toward us high in the sky. It then stopped, the light faded but I could still see it move in a 90 degree direction. We have never seen anything like this! It definitely was not a plane or helicopter! And it surprises me because it’s now 2011!
