I send this mail because I don't feel I have any other place to report
this and have it retained for the records, so I mailed you.
Driving home tonight, July 17, 2010, at approximately 9:50 PM along
Highway 127N into New Miami, OH, I witnessed what appeared at first to
be an object or meteor crashing through the sky.
The object was bright orange/red and had a tail. The object split into three parts
I thought at this point it was still some sort of
debris from space burning in the atmosphere.
It was not seconds after that many more of the bright, orange objects
reappeared, this time without tails. There were at least 4-5 of them.
I then noticed at the time three police helicopters in the area.
bright, orange objects were no longer moving in downward motion in the
sky, they were moving in straight lines and at angles. They were in
no way free floating.
The cluster moved quickly to the north-northeast toward the Middletown/Dayton area before I lost track of seeing them.
I was attempting to continue driving into that area to continue
witnessing the objects but they were all out of my sight, except the
remaining police helicopter.
I called Butler County Dispatch once I got home to see what people had
They were quick to dismiss the objects as some sort of
"balloon festival" that was happening in Smith Park.
I'm sorry, but
balloons don't fly at angles to each other... plus I don't think police
helicopters would need to be in the area for "balloons."
I'd like to remain anonymous, but I figured I'd let SOMEONE know about
this. I've been spazzing at my family and friends, and I'm being
treated like a loon.
