USA Struck by Wave of Orange Fireball Spheres?

On the heels of release of the phenomenal NARCAP (National Aviation Reporting Center  on Anomalous Phenomena) Sphere Report back in April (Spherical UAP and Aviation Safety) we get these two reports dealing with an apparent rise in specific types of UFO reports this July of Orange Glowing Fireballs. The first report comes from Peter Davenport of NUFORC (National UFO Reporting Center) who says:

I write to apprise you all of the peculiar sightings that reportedly have been occurring across the North American Continent since approximately July 1st, 2010.  Within the last several days, NUFORC has posted approximately 300 reports, 147 of which are for the dramatic events that occurred on the evening of July 4th.

In my sixteen years of tenure as Director of NUFORC, I ve not seen an incident of this nature.  In addition, the phenomenon appears to be continuing unabated.  Many reports of these peculiar lights, or fireballs, were reported as recently as last night, July 10th.

And in this recent article by Roger Marsh we hear MUFON’s database showing a similar wave of Orange Spheres being reported frequently this July:

Bright, round, orange spheres are being heavily reported across the country in record numbers throughout July 2010, according to reports from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

Could all of these reports be explained away as Chinese lanterns? Some of them, but not all of them, according to Illinois MUFON State Director Sam Maranto.

Is this just mass misinterpretation of fireworks as glowing fireball spheres? One has to wonder – Peter Davenport has been at this a while.

Meanwhile, Regan Lee (Oregon Bureau Chief for LOWFI) has written a new article for her Trickster’s Realm column at Binnall of America about her own Close Encounters with Orange Orb UFOs:

An intriguing aspect of alien encounter stories is the shared experience element. There have been many times when I’ve heard a story that, no matter how unusual, how weird, and unbelievable someone’s account may seem, it often turns out that others have had similar, if not the same, kind of experience.

I’ve had UFO experiences going back to childhood, but my sighting of an orange orb in Oregon in the 1980s is, for some reason yet to be discovered, the catalyst for my journey into the world of esoterica, I couldn’t find any references to similar sightings. No books on UFOs or aviation mentioned basket ball sized, glowing from within, seemingly sentient and telepathic orange orbs. Yet I saw one. Furthermore, I experienced missing time the day/night of the sighting. (Other weird events occurred around this sighting as well.)

I’ve seen several UFOs since that sighting, but never anything like that orange orb. Although something odd did happen last year, as I wrote on UFO Magazine’s site…

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (, organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
