Hovering Orange Lights Witnessed in Virgina and Washington

Witnesses in Virginia and Washington report hovering orange lights in the sky in separate cases on June 25, 2012, a national UFO phenomena that appears to be escalating and is being studied by the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).
"While most orange objects reported are Chinese lanterns, military flares/buoys or incoming aircraft, my research has shown that several sightings in both the MUFON and National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) databases reveal that some of these objects are intelligently controlled, and when grouped, working together," said Marie Malzahn, MUFON's director of investigations and a board member.
The Virginia witness was at home and first saw the light from the living room in MUFON Case 39830.
"I saw a bright flash of orange light which led to me seeing a massive hovering, orange light in the sky off to the northeast," the witness stated.

As in other cases, the witness first rules out conventional objects before thinking that the object might be something odd.
"The object measured anywhere from 700 to 900 feet wide, perfectly circular, stationary, light, brightly orange, bright enough to light up my entire backyard and several other buildings around my house."
After watching the object for about 12 minutes, something else very odd occurred.
"The object then emitted a bright white light that shown to the ground. Not sure where as my view was obstructed by several other houses. Then after emitting the beam the light, it slowly faded away until it was completely gone."
Then on the same date in Washington State, a witness reports watching an orange light "rise up from the foothills" in MUFON Case 39822.
The witness was sitting outside smoking a cigarette and happened to look toward the foothills area.
"All of a sudden a bright, reddish-orange ball ascended up out of the foothills," the witness stated. "I immediately stood up and looked through my binoculars to see if I could see if a body shape. All I could see was a bright red orb."
The witness described the object's movements.
"It slowly moved up a few degrees and then stopped," the witness stated. "At this time I noticed it was fluctuating in size and color. I yelled for my son and my husband to look outside. It then slowly moved to the east. All this time it was below the mountains and the cloud cover, but it was inside a thick level of a fog."
The witness attempted to videotape the object, but was too late.
"It did not move away. It did not go behind a building or trees. It just disappeared. The area that I witnessed this in, I am very familiar with. It appeared right above Franklin Elementary School and there is no way a plane or helicopter could be flying in that low in that area."
MUFON has been taking in a high number of cases over the past year where the object is being described as an orange or red light.
"The more we study these phenomena, the less we understand as these objects continue to change size, shape and color," said John Ventre, MUFON's Pennsylvania state director. "One has to start considering that they are not solid and might be alive or interdimensional."
""It's a phenomenon that bears further investigation, and most definitely, an open mind to the possibility that they are extraterrestrial," Malzahn added.
MUFON's Illinois State Director Sam Maranto also believes this type of object should be studied and hopes that there is more digital photo and video evidence. "There a good number of distinct characteristics as long as the witness is close enough to observe them."
