A bright, orange ball with a pulsing light and no engine noise that disappeared suddenly.
The following information was submitted on April 17, 2012.
15 miles west of Athens GA, walking our dog around 9-9:15 pm, we noticed a bright orange ball that had a mild pulsing light similar to an airplane in the south sky traveling north towards us; I initially thought it was an airplane but as it got closer, there was no engine noise, nor did it have the blinking lights of an airplane, it was a barely notoceable pulsing light. It appeared to be ascending but it was not on a normal flight path in this area. We stood still watching it fly overhead, northbound, and within three seconds of passing over us, it completely dissapeard to the north,(Just above Highway 316 between Collins Hill and Carl Bethlehem Rd in Barrow County, GA.).
In comments, another site user indicated seeing something similar.
I I saw the same thing in Atlanta on the night of the 14th..I saw several orange balls flying by...they were low and passed in front of a condo tower...made no noise...I have video of it on my phone...kinda of shaky but you can still make it out
Are you a believer? Have you seen any unidentified flying objects in the Barrow County area? Tell us in comments.
