Date of Sighting: July 4, 2009
Time of Sighting: 10:45 PM EDT
Location of Sighting: Union Pier, Michigan (See Map)

Description: A group of us saw a reddish light flying from the Northeast along the shore of Lake Michigan. It was moving slower than an airplane, but fast enough that we could tell it wasn't just floating debris from the fireworks. It was moving Southwest and then stopped right in front of us. It stayed there for a about a minute or two and then seemed to just fade into the black sky. Then I looked down the beach and saw two more of the exact same thing moving towards us, one behind the other a few hundred feet apart. They did the same thing. Then I got my camera because I saw a fourth one down the beach. It too moved along until it was almost directly in front of us and then stopped and eventually got smaller and smaller. The lights were pulsating and seemed to be mostly red but other colors were also appearing. My video is 57 MB so I can't upload it here, but it shows one pretty well.

Note: I have been unable to obtain the video from the witness. I don't believe that the reddish lights were fireworks. (The witnesses noticed them because they were apparently viewing fireworks.) We normally receive many reports around the 4th of July due to the fact that more people are outside looking at the sky viewing fireworks. This doesn't necessarily mean that the sightings are fireworks.
