Six unidentified objects crossed overhead the golf course adjacent to our house. They emitted orbs of reddish-orange light in their wakes, resembling Chinese lanterns but traveling at speed, and mostly flew in a formation of four towards the front, with two stragglers flying towards the rear.
We didn’t hear any noise, but we managed to capture the objects in photos, and on a few of the photos the distinct stubby, cylindrical shape of the UFO is visible.
At some point, one of the objects passed the moon and revealed a clear spherical shape, with its light source being held underneath its structure like an inverted candle flame. It’s nothing we can identify.
One of us was pretty clued up on aircraft and local airports, and confirmed that there was no reasonable explanation for the direction, shape, formation or speed of the flying objects.
Any ideas what we’re looking at?
