Object Looked Like A Plane On Fire Seen Over Cumberland Rhode Island
Date: September 29, 2012 Time: Approx: 9:15 p.m.
On Saturday evening, approx. 9:15 p.m., on 9/29/2012 in Cumberland, RI my companion and I saw an object, seemed low in the sky, coming towards us as we pulled into the driveway.
This area has planes all the time, that fly into Green Airport and from North Central Airport. Although we'd never seen anything like this color, my first thought was perhaps it's a plane on fire.
There was no sound of a plane motor, and I thought wow it's kind of coming right towards us, I hope it's not going to crash or something.
It sort of appeared to be gliding towards us, there was no shape, per say, just 3 connected orange glowing lights.
We both figured, once it got closer and went over us, we'd be able to see what it was, and we expected to see something familiar so that we could say, "oh yeah that's what it is", but that didn't happen.
This thing just stopped and silently hovered a bit in the distance for about a minute. We were even more confused at this point.
Then it backed away slowly and took off at a high speed.
We were left confused and thinking what the heck was that strange thing? I've seen hundreds of planes in my 47 years living here, and not once have I ever seen anything like that.
Planes, jets, helicopters, blimps, etc. nothing like that. Online, in an attempt to locate something similar and find the reasonable explanation for this orange lighted object, I did find something that looked identical to the one we witnessed, however, this was witnessed and filmed by someone on the east coast.
Attached link, we saw the three orange lighted object here in Cumberland, RI. Surely, there is an easy explanation, probably so obvious it will seem silly once we're told, but I can't for the love of Pete, figure it out. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
This is someone's video at a different place and date, but it is exactly what we saw here in Rhode Island on 9/29/2012 at 9:15 p.m. http://youtu.be/CLGX9bfA0Dk
