Over the last 48 hours, NUFORC has received almost 100 similar reports of very peculiar events, which have been witnessed across the U. S. and Canada on July 4th, and perhaps on July 3rd, as well. The sightings are a phenomenon for which we have no ready explanation. Many of the reports from both days have been submitted by seemingly serious-minded individuals, many of whom apparently witnessed the events with multiple other witnesses present.
To date, we have received reports of the phenomenon from the following U. S. states and Canadian provinces: California; Connecticut; Washington,
D.C.; Florida; Georgia; Illinois; Indiana; Kentucky; Massachusetts; Manitoba; Michigan; Minnesota; Missouri; North Dakota; Nebraska; New Jersey; New York; Ohio; Oklahoma; Pennsylvania; Tennessee; Texas; Virginia; Vermont; and Washington State.
The reports are similar, in that the witnesses have described seeing strange red, orange, or yellow “fireballs,” which have been seen either to
hover in the night sky, or to streak overhead, sometimes individually, and on some occasions in clusters. In some instances, the objects were observed
against a clear, cloudless sky, and in other cases, they were observed below solid or broken overcast.
Given the wide area over which the objects were observed, we suspect that there may be hundreds of thousands, or perhaps millions, of people who also were witness to these objects and events, but who have not reported their sightings.
IF YOU WERE WITNESS TO THIS PHENOMENON, WE WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST THAT YOU SUBMIT A WRITTEN REPORT, _USING THE ONLINE REPORT FORM_
We would be grateful if you would please include in your report at least the following information:
1) The time and date of the sighting;
2) your location;
3) the direction you were looking;
4) the estimated angle of elevation;
5) how many objects you witnessed;
6) whether the objects were in motion, or stationary, and what direction they appeared to be moving;
7) how big the objects appeared to be, relative to the size of a star in the night sky, or the Moon;
how many other witnesses were present; and
9) how the objects disappeared from your sight.
We would encourage you to include any other facts about your sighting, which will help another person understand what you saw, and what the event looked like. Please bear in mind that the only thing another person will ever know about your sighting will depend entirely on what you choose to write about it, so please be thorough.
Also, if you know other witnesses to the same event, please encourage them to submit a report, prepared independently of you, and of all other witnesses who were present.
We will post all reports we receive as quickly as they arrive at our Center.
Thank you for submitting your report!
