  • Me and my sister saw a ball of light…yellowish orange in color…about 3 weeks apart in the same location from our porch in monroeville Alabama.
    It appeared to be pretty close to the ground.
    Underneath the clouds because it’s a cloudy night and you can’t see the stars.
    I’ve done a lot of research and can’t find anything similar.
    What could it be?

  • I was driving with my husband on I90 in Washington state, going westbound and saw a pretty large green mass outlined in red moving in a downward arc across the sky. It happened so fast and seemed to disappear into the surrounding mountains. It was amazing! I have been looking up possible explanations and found your site so I thought I’d write about it.

  • I was just outside in my backyard, time was about 1am when I saw a flashing twinkling light, the light began to move slowly, I looked at another star close by to see if it was moving closer to it and I wasn’t seeing things! it was moving towards the star and it was moving up and across the sky, it began moving quicker but then began to flash like 3 little lights together and continued moving across the sky flashing out of sight. Was very interesting couldn’t take my eyes off it!

  • At approx. 02:30 a.m., I was absolutely stunned to discover a huge, bright, round, dense object in the sky. It did not move; however, after a few minutes it changed its shape and was now an object with a “straight line” with 1[one] light on each end, I believe one light was green and the other may have been yellow or red.

    Approx. two[2] months ago, at approx. 02:00 a.m., I was shocked to see a large, bright object in the sky. In did not appear to move. I grabbed my binoculars; however, was not able to obtain a steady shot. The object appeared to have some sort of light structure within, which was moving in different directions. This object “flew” away. My son was a witness to this event. This also occurred on a couple more occasions.

  • I just witnessed an amazing occurrence. At approximately 12am UK time on Sun 23 Dec 2018, I came to get some water for my boys who were at the local mosque in Rochdale, UK. On my return looking up at the window and the dome of the mosque I saw an awesome white light travel in a western direction with magnificent speed. I’ve seen satellites and shooting stars before, this phenomenon was too close to be any of them. Its height was approx. The same as a low flying plane.
