Description: I saw the same red object on 1-10-2014 in Wise, VA as I was getting out of my car around 7:15 PM. There was no sound and it was moving steadily across the sky. I took 3 pictures. My camera flashed with the first picture, but I switched settings and got 2 more “fuzzy” pictures. I watched it go out of sight. I turned to get something out of my car and when I turned back around the object was back. I watched it once more out of sight and still no sound. I don’t know if it sensed the camera flash and came back or maybe it was a second red object that I didn’t see coming across the sky.
Note: The witness is referring to the following sighting reported to UFO researcher Brian Vike:
Hello. My name is (name removed). I saw something in the sky tonight and came online to search and see if anyone has seen the same. I came across your October 2010 and April 2012 postings, so I thought I would tell you then and continue to search.
It’s Saturday night July 8th, 2012 at around midnight. I have a swimming pool in my backyard, 2nd year, and have always wanting to do some nighttime swimming, and just float and look at the stars.
I finally was able to do this tonight, as the water was warm enough. By the way, I am in Marion, Indiana. There were people doing fireworks a few blocks away, I could hear them, but not see them.
There is a big tree in my neighbors yard and the fireworks were coming from behind the tree a few blocks over. Anyway, I saw a very very bright red object come over the tree. I thought, oh wow, I get to see a firework after all.
I thought it was a burning spark from the firework. I watched it thinking it would fall and burn out like town firework shows do. It started coming my way, and I thought holy crap, it’s not going to burn out, as it got closer.
I thought it may fall right on me in the pool. I hurried and got out of the intertube I was in, in case I had to dodge this burning ember. As I stood in the pool watching, I realized it wasn’t falling at all, it was moving straight across the sky.
I watched it go over me and across the sky as far as I could see. It was moving in a straight line, never dimmed, the red brightness of this thing is something that just had me in awe. Definitely not any type of plane.
A person knows when they see something that just doesn’t match up. I have a 14 year old son that was with his father and grandmother and him and his father told me they saw something red flying across the sky a couple days ago.
I blew it off as fireworks, but when I saw this, I called them immediately. Now I know what they saw. What is it? I don’t know. I just know it scared the hell out of me.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
