Jefferson, Main ~ April 4th, 2014
Reported: 4/4/2014 1:16:26 PM 13:16
Location: Jefferson, ME
Duration:~30 minutes 16 identical fixed wing objects moving apparently randomly, both indivdually and collectively, as hawks might do, very high up.
The time of my sighting began at approximately 14:15 on April 4, 2014. The location is Jefferson, Maine, about 20 miles east of Augusta.
I am a frequent watcher of the sky, and as I gazed up at this time toward the north, I saw very high up (several miles) at maybe a 70 degree angle from ground level to directly overhead two white objects that caught my attention. They were drifting, rather than flying in a linear manner as any airplane would normally do. The motion seemed to be analogous to a hawk or eagle looking for prey far below, or perhaps a hang glider. However, these objects were apparently around the height of normal jet plane, way too high for birds. They were not drifting with a wind current as they were constantly changing direction.
I watched for a few minutes and then went in to get binoculars. Upon locating them in the binoculars, I noticed color--orange, yellow, and green from from front to back respectively. I continued to watch for awhile then was about to put away the binoculars inside the house when I went out again and saw many more. I was able to count 16 in all. Every one was identical in size, shape and color.
After watching some more, I called a friend who also has a keen interest in UFO sightings. She lives about a mile from me, also in Jefferson. When she went out she could only see two, but only in white.
While she reported what she was seeing, I was inside on my land line phone with her. Eventually, they disappeared into the haze of the thin clouds and we lost sight of them after about one half hour, seeming to be moving to the east from north.
What struck me was their apparent random motion with respect to each other and also in rather looping circular motion individually, again, much as one might see with hawks or eagles. The shape was like a small fixed wing airplane. No sound was heard nor anything resembling a jet contrail.
I am a senior citizen in complete control of my mental capacity. My friend is likely a bit younger, but over 50.

Vancouver, Washington ~ April 6th, 2014
Occurred : 4/6/2014 20:30 (Entered as : 04/06/14 21:00)
Reported: 4/7/2014 10:37:05 AM 10:37
Location: Vancouver, WA
Duration:5+ minutes Driving north in Vancouver, Washington, approx. 8:30pm on April 6th, 2014, I noticed a bright orange light in the northern sky. I slowed down thinking it was odd to see orange lights on a plane.
My sister and I pulled in a gas station and I looked back toward the object, but this time I noticed two bright orange lights, adjacent to each other. I was outside the car filling the tank and noticed how slow they were headed toward the S.E.
I told my sister that maybe they were helicopters, but quickly dismissed that notion, because there was no sound emitted. She watched the two while I finished getting gas and when I turned back to look, there was a third bright orange light come from the N.W. toward the S.E., like the first two. However the first two were now gone. Simply not in front of us any longer.
This made no sense.
My sister said they had just vanished. Now, I was very interested and stood away from my car, giving all my attention to the arriving bright orange light. It continued the same path as the first two objects, going at the same slow speed. It arrived at the same location where the first two were last seen. Its light just simply faded away. I never took my eyes off it, and it reminded me of a dying ember. It got dimmer and then was gone.
East Jackson, Mississippi ~ April 10th, 2014

Reported: 4/11/2014 1:31:31 PM 13:31
Location: East Jackson, MI
Duration:10 minutes Slow moving group of red lights. Some in triangle formation.
Standing in driveway watched for ten minutes an irregular line of scattered bright red lights moving slowly in Northeastern sky. Seem to be travelling from northwest to southeast.
Faster than air balloon but much slower than helicopter. Hard to tell altitude exactly.
About six were in a definite triangle formation. Lights seem to go out after a while. Two additional lights came into view as the first ones went out.
They went out about a minute after the first lights disappeared.
