Orange Orbs Over Long Beach

Ever since I was a little child I’ve wanted to see a UFO, but in all my years of watching the sky I’ve never had any luck seeing a real UFO. Well, that has changed…

Last night, around 7:00 pm, our neighbor called us to the back balcony to witness the final moments of a string of orange orbs flying past Long Beach. It was an awesome sight – the video just doesn’t do it any justice, but I offer it here for your enjoyment and speculation…

Here’s my report I filed with Mufon.org last night – this morning (Sunday, November 14th) I got a call from a Mufon investigator named Steve who was following up on my report. During our discussion I found out that orange orbs are the most commonly UFOs reported – but it’s a real UFO…

MUFON CASE#26561

Just before 7:00 pm this evening (November 13, 2010) my wife and I heard our downstairs neighbor calling us to the back yard. My wife went out and then yelled for me to come outside quickly because there were “UFOs out here..”

I ran out to the back balcony and looked up to see several bright orange orbs in the sky, looking towards the ocean and the direction of Catalina Island. I quickly ran back into our apartment and grabbed my point-and-shot digital camera.

I returned to the balcony and was able to record the last 2 and a half minutes of the sighting while the last orb brightened for a last time and then faded to a dark gray and continued on it’s course. I personally saw two bright orange orbs, my wife saw three (because she went outside first) and our neighbor said she saw 7-8 orange orbs, all in a line across the sky.

I am not sure how far away the orbs were from us, but they were unlike anything I have ever seen. They seemed to burn from inside, but it wasn’t what seemed to be propelling them. They did not fall through the sky like burning debris, but like a vehicle moving on a set course from west to east across the sky.

While it can’t be seen because of the video quality, the orbs continued along their eastern course as dark gray orbs, each with a very dim orange glow inside.

Included with this report is several graphics I made this evening right after the event:

1. a time-chart of the path of the one orange orb I was able to videotape. [see below]
2. a map showing our field of view and the flight path of the orange orb. [see above]

The video is unedited.

The graphic at the top of the page shows the direction the orbs were traveling, and the graphic below shows the time sequence of the video.

If anyone else saw this event, or has extra information to add to this report, please send it to me and I’ll add it to this post.

  1. I am glad that you recorded video and posted this. My husband was out in our back yard last night and called me and my mother out to check the sky. Sure enough we saw about 9 glowing orange orbs, moving very methodically and appearing in formation across the sky in an eastward direction. The orbs did gradually fade to grey to blend in with the sky but they were still visible and in motion. Fascinating close encounter to watch!

  2. My aunt asked me to search the web and youtube to see if anyone saw what you described. She watched for 5 min. as they moved from east to west. What were they? crazy

  3. I AM SO GLAD I FOUND THIS SITE ON NOVEMBER 13 I ALSO SAW THESE LIGHTS IN THE SKY. I WALKED OUT TO MY TRASH AREA AND LOOKED UP I SAW ABOUT 25 LIGHTS RIGHT ABOVE ME, THERE WERE TWO YOUNG MEN IN THE ALLEY THAT SAID TO ME HEY CHECK THAT OUT I WAS AMAZED AND ACTUALLY SCARED OF WHAT I WAS EXPERIENCING. I RAN UP STAIRS TO GET MY NEIGHBOR AND SHE ALSO CAME OUT AS I WENT DOWN THE STREET AND WATCHED THESE AMAZING LIGHTS THAT WERE SHAPED LIKE A SANDWICH SIZE BAG WITH A LIGHT IN IT FLOATING NOT CONNECTED BUT ALL NEXT TO EACH OTHER IT LOOKED LIKE LUMINARIES FLOATING IN THE SKY AND THEN THEY KEPT FLOATING AND EVENTUALLY DISAPPEARED.WHAT AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT WAS THIS IS JUST WHAT I EXPERIENCED.
    PLEASE CONTACT ME THE PERSON THAT VIDEO TAPED THIS WE MUST BE NEIGHBORS

  4. Hi, Im from Puerto Rico. Last night, december 6, I was taking out the garbage when far away in the sky, I saw an orb of light, moving irregularly. At first I thought that it was a plane or something, but the light was fixed, it wasnt strobbing or anything. And it wasnt moving in a single direction, it even stopped at one time and then kept moving. When I went inside to look for the camera, and went back outside, it was gone. I only saw a single orb.

  5. My boyfriend and I saw 3 on the beach on July 3rd, 2011. They looked like orange glowing orbs. Each flew very slowly across the sky on the same path and seemed to burn up as they continued out to sea.
