INVESTIGATOR’S REPORT: Case number 70162 was assigned to this investigator on the morning of September 6 2015. After receiving the assignment, attempts were made via email to contact the witness involved; no replies have been received.
Uploaded to this report is a screen shot taken from Google Maps, to be used as a visual reference.
According to the initial report, the witness was heading north on Main Street, in the city of Racine WI, when a series or orange orbs moved in from over Lake Michigan (to the east), and continued inland in a southwesterly direction.
**This may correlate with case number 69239, in which the witness reported seeing orange lights coming in from the east. With 69239’s location being roughly 5 miles from 70162’s, there is a possibility that these cases are related; both involve orange lights in groups of two or three, both have the orbs coming in from the east, and both fall within the same general time frame (separated by a couple days).
With these two occurrences being similar in nature and scope, I checked to see if there was any celestial event which might relate to the reported events. It seems that the Perseid Meteor Shower was happening within this time frame; this annual event peaks between August 9 and August 14, and that the best direction to look is towards the northeast. While neither case reported seeing any tails, it is possible that the meteors were above the Earth’s atmosphere, and thus no tails were produced.
This is not to say that these events were part of the meteor shower; it is mentioned merely as a possibility.
