Message: I was lying in bed, trying to force myself to get up. I was looking out the window, and I saw three sets of what looked like headlights floating by, as though they were in a convoy. They were not bright, and caused no reflection or light movement inside the room, as a car’s headlights would do. Each orb-shaped light had a haze around it, but I couldn’t make out an actual object. They moved in pairs, one pair behind the other, moving towards my house, hence my description of “headlights.” I saw them for about 10 seconds, as they passed in front of my house and out of sight of me.
They moved fairly slowly, my best guess being that they were traveling about as fast as a car moving at about 15-20mph. The burnt orange orbs appeared to be about the size of tennis balls from where I saw them, and they were just above the tree line along the road that passes in front of my house, about 120 yards in distance from my house,but they did not seem to get larger as they moved towards my house. I have no idea what they were or what they could have been, hence “unidentified flying object.” Just an odd occurrence.
I honestly didn’t think much of it at the time, except that it was strange, until my neighbor asked later in the morning if I saw anything that was odd at about that time earlier in the morning. Apparently, they saw it also, but wouldn’t say what they saw or fully admit to seeing anything (that is why I said I was the only witness).
