A Virginia couple began to pray while watching a "swarm or fleet of 50-plus morphing, glowing spheres on December 11, 2011, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The woman first spotted what they thought was a "huge flock of birds in the northwest sky that were traveling east."
"Something was odd about the 'flock' as what appeared as grey chevron shapes started glowing and morphed into spheres randomly. Then the 'flock' seemed to grow in numbers as they came closer."
The woman pointed it out to her husband. They then noticed a second, smaller swarm appear from the north and join the first group.
"They were glowing at different rates, appearing to spin, almost like reflections of the sun on the surface. We kept saying it can't be birds it doesn't make sense."
The couple then began to pray.
"They hovered above us for about a minute, long enough for us to pray the 'Our Father' prayer. We weren't scared - just curious."
