Unidentified orbs were reported near planes today with one witness on the ground in Tennessee and one witness flying at 10,000 feet over Arizona, according to November 28, 2012, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The orange orb phenomena has been reported rather frequently this past year over U.S. skies. Many are dismissed as sky lanterns, but ufologists look for witness testimony where the object is clearly controlled and moves in ways other than floating with the wind.
A Clarksville, TN, witness reported watching a "weird glowing ball of light" following a plane about 4:35 p.m. on November 28, 2012, in Case 44203.
"The plane appeared to be descending in the sky and this ball remained by its side until they disappeared behind the tree line," the witness stated. "The plane left a contrail, but this UFO did not."
A witness who had just taken off from Phoenix, AZ, and headed to Boise, ID, on November 28, 2012, reported seeing a ball of light once they reached about 10,000 feet in Case 44206.
"I had the window seat, looked out the window and saw 'unbelievably clearly' an orange ball, the size of big rubber kid's kickball, pass right by the plane just below opposite direction," the witness stated. "Not sure if it was moving because we were. Could have been stationary. Blew my mind. Really wanted to scream, did anyone see that perfect orange ball?"
