Date of Sighting: September 2, 2017
Time of Sighting: 8:15 to 8:45 PM EDT
Description: My sighting occurred between 8:15 and 8:45 PM on Sept. 2, 2017 at 30 E William St., Waterloo, NY. The weather was very overcast. It had rained earlier in the day. Getting out of my vehicle and I happened to look towards downtown because I heard a siren. An orange light caught my eye above the buildings moving south to north in an upward trajectory about the speed of helicopter if seen at a distance. It was about twice the size of the brightest star I have ever seen. If I had to guess a distance it would be 3 to 4 miles which puts it over Seneca Lake in Geneva, NY. Within ten seconds another appeared, and then a third, evenly spaced. I watched them go out of sight in the western sky. I went in the house, but came out after 5 minutes to check for more. I was about to give up when 1 at a time 5 more appeared. They move at the same speed and had the same spacing. They were almost out of sight when 2 more appeared then 3 more with a big gap between the two groups, but I could see all 5 before any went out of sight. There were 13 in all. They made no noise. I then I watched for another half hour, but saw nothing. Tonight I decided to look online for a site to report it. Thank you. I have 5 phone videos that I sent to my computer. I will try to send them to you. Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
