New York witnesses describe spheres moving along power lines

A New York couple at Massena reported watching two orange-red spheres near power lines as they drove eastbound along Route 131 directly behind the Alcoa Plant and parallel to the St. Lawrence Seaway Shipping Canal, according to testimony in Case 64114 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The reporting witness said the day was a high pressure day, no clouds, with no aircraft in sight, and temperature about 60 degrees F. about 8:15 p.m. on May 24, 2014.

“I observed a solid looking reddish-orange sphere flying above and along power lines that lead directly into Alcoa,” the reporting witness stated. “They originate at the Robert Moses Power Dam that lies east-northeast of Alcoa by about five and-one-half miles.”

The witness noticed the object did not have any lights on it as required for aircraft navigation.

The first sphere crossed Route 131 at right angles to the road and at an elevation of approximately 600 feet. Pictured: Route 131 in Massena, NY. (Credit: Google)

“Upon making this observation and bringing it to my wife’s attention I saw the second sphere following the first on the same flight path. I was nearing a section of the highway that didn’t allow any further observation.”

The couple continued moving east along Route 131 for approximately 200 yards when they observed a sphere.

“I assumed it was the first one, cross Route 131 at right angles to the road and at an elevation of approximately 600 feet. The sphere was larger in diameter due, I assume, to our closer proximity to it. I quickly lost sight of the sphere as trees on the north side of the road blocked our view. I had reached the turn to the south for the Dennison Road and took the turn and stopped.”

The couple then saw the second sphere leaving the proximity of the power lines at a right angle and it seemed to follow the same northerly flight path of the first sphere.

“Again, due to trees we lost sight of the object. I brought the vehicle back on Route 131, traveling east and sped up to allow us a better view to the north. When we reached an overgrown meadow with shorter trees we saw the first sighted object in a stationary position over the Seaway Shipping Canal. As the second object neared the position of the first sphere, the hovering sphere moved off to the north very quickly.”

The witness watched as the first object moved away and could no longer be seen.

“The second sphere, upon reaching the recently vacated position of the first object, began hovering, stationary without discernible movement. When the first sighted object was no longer discernible, the second object followed the flight path of the first sighted object until it too was no longer visible.”

Both objects eventually moved away until they were no longer seen. Pictured: Route 131 in Massena, NY. (Credit: Google)

    There were a series of orbs spotted on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada at Rathrevor Beach and further up the Island during a summer time period several years ago. I saw these orbs moving slowly above the water but definitely about 30-40 feet in the air. I was on an embankment about 80 feet up. I could not make sense of them, thought at first they might be lantern but did not resemble anything I had seen before. They moved slowly along the beach (high tide) and then reversed direction, some going out and others moving sideways back from where they came. A few days later I read several reports of them although I cannot recall whether this was in the local paper or on the web. It seemed to be quite peaceful and the usual beach goers were swimming (area of resorts). I have also seen the very high starlike ones that change direction suddenly but that was in another area. I study the stars quite frequently in good weather and used to sleep out most summer nights in my youth so I have seen many satellites and normal constellation rotation throughout the night.
