Shape: Changing | Duration: 5 minutes

Firework- like balls of light dart and merge into a swelling ball of light.That night I was outside smoking. It was 3:03 am. I saw some flashing light that looked like firework balls- only they moved very fast- they would fade and almost disappear, then rush back into view again. They would move out and away from each other- then merge together again- quickly. They began merging and then would form a glowing ball of white light, which would grow in size. Then it would break apart and repeat. I grabbed my phone, and recorded it. My dogs were unusually silent- they stood still next to me. Then the last time, it grew to be so bright and huge, It almost like it knew I was watching or something. I then clicked some photos instead of video- but when it merged and got brighter and bigger - it was like it was coming towards me. So, I got scared and went back inside quickly. The video was not on my phone any longer. The pictures were still there though.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information. PD))
