Time: Approx: 11:15 p.m.
Hello Brian, I have just read your story on Sightings.com because I have seen the exact same thing you described this evening. I figured I'd Google it and try to find an explanation and I fell on your site. It was around 11:15pm, but there was only one. The people we were with said they had seen it last evening too, but didn't think too much about it until tonight.
The one we saw tonight looked like it was gliding at a steady slow speed from SE to N, but not in a straight line (we are situated in North Eastern New Brunswick, Canada). It actually looked like it almost came to a stop, turned to face north (at that point it was losing it's brightness, but looked like a cigar shaped object) and just started a climb through the clouds.
We could tell there were clouds because no stars were to be seen, and besides, we are expecting hurricane Earl to hit tomorrow in the Maritimes. Our friend was quick enough to grab a pair of binoculars and said it looked like a big ball of fire as he could see the orange brightness dancing.
Anyhow, we thought it was really weird and we had the same discussion you posted on your site, could it have been an air balloon? No because the fire goes on and off plus we should have been able to see the balloon lit up. Could it have been a satellite? No because it was under the clouds and too big and orange. A flare? No because flares are usually red and come down instead of climbing up. So, if you ever find an answer to this UFO, let us know.
If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.
