Further Description of Sighting: It’s early fall in White Mountain, Alaska and around 6 PM. Late August to early September and I went outside of my uncle’s house for a cigarette. As I walked toward the end of his deck looking south towards the hills, I see an orb of white light traveling above ground about 50 to 75 feet from west to east.
It must have traveled 20 to 30 miles in a matter of seconds. All of a sudden it makes a 90 degree turn towards the sky and as it shoots upward it turns off and disappears. The rate of upward speed was significantly faster and shuts off within a second or two.
There are other orbs that I have seen on a separate occasion. Moose hunting in the fall. September 1st to September 5 of about 2014 for these orbs. Two separate orbs were seen at different times of the same night. The first orb hovered in a distance past a group of tall birch moved about 5 feet and shuts off.
The second orb seen about a half hour later further than the first because it hovered about the mountain top and travel southwest. It shot of in the direction and I lost it behind the mountain. It appears may 2 seconds later in a clearing about 15 miles away and must have traveled a distance of 75 miles. This one also shuts off above the ground.
