Low-flying orange orbs shoot overhead

Alien probes or something els altogether?

Several Missouri witnesses traveling southbound on I-435 stopped to observe as many as 125 low-flying, orange objects that moved up from the tree line and traveled away at about the speed of a helicopter, according to May 16, 2011, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

All of the objects moved in from the north low on the horizon and then moved south – each object splitting into five smaller objects – before moving into cloud cover.

“As they spread and slowly began to disappear into the clouds above (low ceiling), a larger and brighter orange object at a faster speed, about 1-2 degrees above the horizon, behind the tree line, and then as it started to ascend, split into five smaller orange objects, again radical in flight, without formation, and slowly ascended into the cloud cover,” the reporting witness stated. “This occurred about 20 times over a 25 minute span. They all came from the North (low on horizon) to South and then turning toward the East and then into cloud cover.”

The event occurred over a 25-minute period and stopped after the largest object was seen – also splitting into five smaller objects.

“At one time, I observed over 15 in the sky at one time. At approx 9:58 p.m., the largest ball at a faster speed flew, split into 5 smaller objects, they followed the same path as the previous objects, and then the event seemed to stop. There were other vehicles on the shoulder of the highway observing this event. I got one person’s name and phone, and the next day he related that he talked to another individual who also saw this phenomenon.”

The witness also observed a “jerky motion” to the objects

“Once they all rose above the treeline, I would approximate their speed at approximately that of a helicopter. But the jerky motion didn’t make sense, and the coloration from a side view made no sense, as the sun had been down for over an hour and the low altitude above the eastern horizon would pretty much rule out solar reflection. I would guess that over the period that I observed these objects, there were approximately 125 of them.”

No town name was mentioned in the MUFON report, which was filed on May 16, 2011. The event occurred on April 13, 2011.

Missouri MUFON reports that Chinese Lanterns have been ruled out in this case due to the observed speed of the objects. “A second witness is sending me photos from their cell phone,” Assistant State Director Margie Kay stated. “A third witness cannot be reached but was at the scene. I am obtaining a photograph of the orange orbs from one witness.” In addition to the above report, the following two cases occurred over the weekend in Missouri.

10:30 p.m., Saturday, May 14, 2011: Anonymous witness called me today: She saw a lighted craft just above the clouds on Saturday night at approximately 10:32 p.m. over Independence, MO, South of 39th Street and Lee’s Summit Road headed in a NW-SE direction. It was not defined and difficult to see – only the large bright circluar white light was clearly visible.

4 a.m. Sunday, May 15, 2011: A very large Grey metallic saucer-shaped craft with a dome and one large horizontal long light and two smaller lights on the side was sighted in Lee’s Summit, MO, on Sunday morning at 4 a.m. Five witnesses saw this. One was a designated driver (he failed to put that in the report) and was not drinking. The others had been drinking at a bar earlier but he assures me that they were not drunk at the time of the sighting. He and his wife also report seeing Apache helicopters, fully armed, circling Lee’s Summit and Blue Springs for 7 days before this sighting. None were seen at the time of the sighting. Note: my secretary lives in Blue Springs and said she has heard the helicopters as well. Lee’s Summit Regional Airport is a small airport and not normally a place where military helicopters are sighted.

Missouri is a current UFO ALERT 5 rating, with a low number of UFO sightings nationally. Missouri had 6 UFO reports in April 2011 – while California had 46 sightings, the highest reporting state in the nation.

The following is the unedited and as yet uninvestigated report filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade.

MO, April 13, 2011 – Multiple waves of 5 orange/low to high trajectory. MUFON Case # 29106.

Travelling S.B. on I-435 when five orange objects in Eastern sky caught my eye. I stopped to observe this phenomena, as they flew slowly, albeit radical, at about 20 degrees above horizon.

As they spread and slowly began to disappear into the clouds above (low celing), a larger and brighter orange object at a faster speed, about 1-2 degrees above the horizon, behind the treeline, and then as it started to ascend, split into five smaller orange objects, again radical in flight, without formation, and slowly ascended into the clould cover.

This occurred about 20 times over a 25 minute span. They all came from the North (low on horizon) to South and then turning toward the East and then into cloud cover.

At one time, I observed over 15 in the sky at one time. At approx 9:58 PM, the largest ball at a faster speed flew, split into 5 smaller objects, they followed the same path as the previous objects, and then the event seemed to stop. There were other vehicles on the shoulder of the highway observing this event. I got one persons name and phone, and the next day he related that he talked to another individual who also saw this phenomenon.

Once they all rose above the treeline, I would approximate their speed at approx. that of a helicopter. but the jerky motion didn’t make sense, and the coloration from a side view made no sense, as the sun had been down for over an hour and the low altitude above the eastern horizon would pretty much rule out solar reflection.

I would guess that over the period that I observed these objects, there were approximately 125 of them. I do not do drugs/drink/or subject to illusions. I am observant, logical, and well educated. This happened, it was unexplainable, and a bit spooky.

AS this event lasted so long, with so many objects, I would presume that radar somewhere would have picked this up. If possible, I would like an explanation from some tower or authority trying to explain this to me. The initial speed of these objects at low altitude seemd to be about 100-120 KPH, but during ascent appeared to slow to around 60-80KPH. The wind was about 15 knots, which Might contribute to some of the uneveness of flight, but probably not.
