Huge Orange Ball Of Light Over Muskegon, Michigan

Originally left as a comment.

In the spring of 2012 me and my boyfriend were driving down a lifeless road, It was around 3 or 4 in the morning. We were coming up to a small strip of antique shop and gas stations along side of the road. Well I glanced forward and turned away, when I quickly relized what I had just seen and looked back it was gone, the same thing with my boyfriend. It was HUGE and it wasn’t like a light it was like a glow and it was orange. And it was just hovering right above all the little shop.

Oh and this was in Muskegon, Michigan by the way.

Even More Orange Balls Of Light

What the hell is going on?

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.

Many have been left in the comments

Just saw the exact same thing about an hour ago here in Sioux Falls, SD. Witnessed about 12 light, no more than 3 at a time. They rose brightly from my E-NE, moved in a westerly direction and then diminished as if they were moving away from me towards the north. This went on for 20 minutes after i first noticed them.

Others come in on the Whales In Space contact form

Last night 01/08/10 my husband and i aw 3 bright orange lights over Langdon
Hills in Basildon.They all came individually from north west in staight
line to north one at a time faded then dissapeared at exactly the same
spot. was cloudy no sound. about 9.30pm

From Beatrice Nebraska, Prairielle, Louisiana, and Warrens, Wisconsin.

We’ve discussed the possible explanation of Chinese Lanterns, and while some of these objects may have been airborne lanterns, there is no way that all these objects, from around the US and England, are all Chinese lanterns. It has also been suggested that the ORBL were nothing more than the international space station and other satellites, but some of the formations and behaviors of the objects seen don’t match the set flight paths of passing satellites (it was nice of NASA to offer that explanation).

And what do I think they are? I don’t know. I’m still pushing the giant flying bioluminescent dinosaurs theory, but even that doesn’t match all the descriptions.

UFO Closes Airport In China

Reports are that the Xiaoshan Airport, in Zhejiang’s provincial capital Hangzhou, was forced to close and divert flights because of an unidentified flying object on July 7th, 2010.

An unidentified flying object (UFO) disrupted air traffic over Zhejiang’s provincial capital Hangzhou late on Wednesday, the municipal government said on Thursday.

Xiaoshan Airport was closed after the UFO was detected at around 9 pm, and some flights were rerouted to airports in the cities of Ningbo and Wuxi , said an airport spokesman, who declined to be named.

The airport had resumed operations, and more details will be released after an investigation, he said.

A source with knowledge of the matter, however, told China Daily on Thursday that authorities had learned what the UFO was after an investigation.

But it was not the proper time to publicly disclose the information because there was a military connection, he said, adding that an official explanation is expected to be given on Friday.

Inbound flights were diverted to the nearby airports in Zhejiang province’s Ningbo and Jiangsu province’s Wuxi. Outbound flights were delayed for three to four hours.

A staff member at the airport’s information desk said the airport had “no idea” how many flights were affected by the closure.

ABC’s article blames US bombers, Russian satellites, and good old fashion meteorological activities.

This happening amidst the largest UFO flap in recent time, that has gone mostly unreported by mainstream media.

More Orange Ball Of Light UFOs – Ontario Canada

Since July 3rd, we have been getting reports of these mysterious Orange Ball Of Light (ORBL) UFOs have been pouring in from all across the United States.

While some sightings may be explained by Chinese Lanterns, many reports do not fit the description and behavior of Chinese Lanterns.

A new sighting from Wasaga Beach area of Ontario, an hour and a half north of Toronto on July 12th, 2010.


On Monday, July 12th, around 10 pm, four of us witnessed something strange
in the Wasaga Beach area of Ontario, an hour and a half north of Toronto.
It started off as a large orange fireball, about the size of the sun,
coming up from the horizon and began rising into the night sky,
travellling a great distance very quickly…

Within three minutes, it rose up so high to the point where it eventually

This, of course, is when I went to retrieve my camera.

Anybody able to shed some light on what it may have been?
There are no fireworks or chinese lanterns and it started off so large and
then just shrunk up so small and disappeared, that we’re puzzled.

Orange Ball Of Light Reports Continue – Seattle and Vancouver WA, July 8th

Sightings of mysterious unexplained Orange Ball Of Light (ORBL) UFOs continue to be reported, now from Western Washington on Thursday July 8th, 2010.

At about 11pm on July 8th, multiple witnesses claimed to see orange balls of light over Seattle, Vancouver and Olympia Washington.

While some of the recent rash of Orange Ball of Light UFOs (ORBL) could be credited to Chinese Lanterns launched for the 4th of July, this getting a bit weird.

Multiple UFOs 4th of July 2010 Over Huntsville, Alabama

From the Whales In Space contact form…
They seem pretty sure they aren’t Chinese Lanterns

We witnessed a total of four occurrences of visitor activity on the 4th of
July 2010 in the Lake Forest Subdivision of Huntsville Alabama. At 8:50 PM
we saw a single large reddish orange glowing orb coming from the south
moving slowing northward; it was very low, maybe 250 to 300′ above the
rooftops. There was absolutely no sound being emitted from the
illuminating sphere. We watched it for about 5-10 minutes as it passed
over our neighborhood and then got into our car and drove to the gas
station at the corner of Martin and Zerdt roads. We could see fireworks
off in the distance so we sat in the car for about 15 minutes and watched.
As we drove home heading west on Martin Road, we saw a formation of 3
glowing orbs. This time I really thought, hey these things are
extraterrestrial and I want to make sure there not hot air balloons or
helicopters. So we slowed down to almost a complete stop, rolled down the
windows to see if we could hear helicopter blades, but there was no sound
at all. And they were not hot air balloons. We had traffic behind us, so
we had to move on and we are not sure where they went, but assume they
continued to move northward as did the first one. We were sitting outside
and then around 10 pm we saw one more solitary glowing orb, but at a higher
altitude than the others and this one was either blinking, or something
behind it was blinking and we watched it move northward as well, then the
dog barked, we looked away and when we looked up again it had disappeared.
Then about 15 minutes later my boyfriend said, look at that satellite. And
I said, where? Then I exclaimed, Wow, did you see that? He said I sure
did, wow! We saw four distinct bright lights that looked like stars that
were in a cluster which was kind of vibrating and then they formed into a
line and just zip off into space on at a time very quickly. It made warp
speed seem slow, they just zipped up and off into space and where gone in
an instant. Neither of us had ever witnessed anything like this before.
We believe that since the orbs were so slow moving and close to the ground
there must have been a number of others who saw the same thing on that
clear 4th of July night in Huntsville, Alabama.

For the skeptics, I looked up sky lanterns and balloons on-line and just
wanted to let you know that there was no way the first one or the second
set of three that we saw were in any way sky lanterns. These illuminating
things were huge. They moved steadily and with a purpose. Not anything
similar to a sky lantern and we were close enough to tell that they were
not hot air balloons. My boyfriend thinks they were as large as a VW bug
and my estimate is a bit larger. They did not flicker and produced an
energy glow that was supernatural. This is the first time I have ever
looked at a ufo site and ever posted any such thing. We are both of sound
mind and we were not under the influence that night. I’d like to know if
anyone else has seen large orbs so closely? Thanks.
