Location of Sighting: Assateague Island, Maryland
Date of Sighting: July 10, 2017
Time of Sighting: 10:30 PM EDT
Description: On Tuesday night (this week) my girlfriend and I were in our tent in the E-loop of the Maryland State Park of Assateague Island. It was about 10:30 PM when I looked out the side of the tent. There were three massive orange/red balls canted twenty degrees hovering slowly low to the ground, but covering all that we could see from inside the tent. I was an imagery interpreter in the Air Force, trained to identify every aircraft in the world. I also lived on Hickam Air Force Base for six years. Each orb was larger than any aircraft I have ever seen. No aircraft has exhausted with anywhere near that size of diameter. We heard no sound. It was very close to us less than a mile and less than two hundred feet above the ground. It pulled away from sight and we sat dumbfounded.
The angle you noticed is similar to what we saw, which furthered my opinion that it was a flying object instead of some strange astronomical occurrence. We saw it for roughly 5 minutes.
