Sighting Reports 2010

White/Silver Orbs Seen Flying in a Horizontal Direction in Formation

Winterset is About 20 Miles Southwest of Des Moines.
Winterset is About 20 Miles Southwest of Des Moines.

Date of Sighting: September 24, 2010
Time of Sighting: 2 PM CDT
Location of Sighting: Winterset, Iowa (See Map)

Description: I was traveling through Winterset, Iowa today. At about 2 PM I was pumping gas and saw 3 white/silver orbs flying in a horizontal direction in formation. I went inside to get my 2 friends and we all saw them. The 3 orbs were followed by a pair in formation. This is weird. I have no explanation. We all 3 saw them.

Additional Information Provided by Witness (In Response to Investigator Questions): There were three objects in formation flying in a Southwest direction. These objects were followed by one more pair. I was pumping gas. I had enough time to run into the gas station and yell at my two friends to come and see. We watched them for about a minute as they disappeared. It was difficult to judge their size. They might have been the size of a beach ball 400 yards away or 30 feet across a mile away. Hard to tell. I am 54 years old and have never seen anything like it.

Note: Several reports have been received of similar orbs during the past few months. A check of winds aloft up to 10,000 feet shows that winds were from a west-northwesterly direction at speeds from 20 to 40 knots. Therefore given that the objects were observed moving towards the southwest eliminates balloons or any flotation device as an explanation for this sighting.
