Sightings of UFOs in the United States
NUFORC has posted approximately 780 new, and amended, reports, as of Friday, July 5th. Peter Davenport has received a large number of reports of red and orange “orbs” or “fireballs” in his reports. Peter states, “Our strong impression is that most of the reports submitted for that date this year are not the result of firework displays.” Since June 2012, NUFORC has been inundated with reports of clusters of red, orange, or yellow “fireballs,” for absence of a better term. We are very interested in this continuing phenomenon, even though we have absolutely no idea what the objects are. We recognize that in some cases, the luminous objects may be so-called “Chinese lanterns.” However, some characteristics of the objects strongly militate against that explanation”
One of the telephoned reports of orange “fireballs” we have received for July 4th was submitted by a former U. S. astronaut and Space Shuttle crew member. We are awaiting follow-up written reports from the three members of his family who observed the object(s), and we will post those reports as quickly as we can. The witness has stated that he is prepared to be identified publicly, and he probably will appear as a guest on a radio program, to describe his sighting.
Editor’s Note: We strongly suspect these fireballs represent a new presence in our skies. MUFON and UFOs Northwest have also received large numbers of similar reports.
