My boyfriend and I were near the abandoned radar station to watch the Perseids meteor shower. He called my intention to a large, brightly lit object in the sky hovering past the radar station, changing lights rapidly. We watched the object for nearly an hour as it hovered, dropped, rose again, faded away, and returned to hover and move around in the same area. The object emitted flashes, or what I would call booms, of light that reflected off of the clouds. It occasionally dropped concentrated light that looked like shooting stars, but they were not shooting stars. We were facing northeast and I captured our coordinates listed at the end of this narrative. On the opposite horizon at almost due west, we saw an identical orb about 15 minutes after we noticed the first. The object was lower on the horizon and much closer than the first. It also glowed brightly with flashing lights from red to yellow to white to blue in rapid succession. It hovered for awhile and then it began its path further west, hugging the horizon the entire time. I was primarily watching the first orb, which continued to hover and move around quickly in the sky to the north and my boyfriend primarily watched the one to the west as it moved further away. Both disappeared around 1 AM at the same time. It was pretty exciting and certainly better than watching the Perseids meteor shower.
