A witness in Newman, Georgia reports sighting and photographing two mysterious glowing orb UFOs that hovered in the night sky near an airport for several minutes before moving apart slowly and disappearing in opposite directions.
According to the witness in a report filed as Case 79837 in the reporting database of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), he was taking a walk in the evening at about 7:30 p.m. on October 16, 2016, near his home in Newman, Georgia, about 15 miles south of the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport when he noticed two very bright orb UFOs hovering very close together in the sky.

He first thought they were airplane lights, but after watching them for a while, he realized they could not be airplane lights, according to Open Minds TV.
The witness assured MUFON that after having lived close to the airport for years, he was very familiar with the appearance and patterns of airplane lights taking off and landing at the airport. He was certain that the two very bright light UFOs he saw hovering close together in the sky over Newman were not airplane lights.
Firstly, the lights were hovering far out of the normal paths of airplanes landing and taking off from the west and east of the airport. Secondly, they were much bigger and brighter than normal airplane lights.
They were large, round or perfectly circular glowing orbs, the witness said, and they were much closer than normal for lights from two separate planes landing or taking off from the airport.
The witness was able to snap photos of the UFOs with his iPhone 6. Then he zoomed in for a closer look hoping to be able to determine exactly what they were.
“They were perfect glowing circles. Almost star-like in color,” he said. “After taking the pictures with an iPhone 6s +, I zoomed in to see if I could get a better look.”
“In the middle of the orbs there seems to be something in the middle of each of them, but not sure if it is just distortion or not,” he added.
The UFO sighting, according to the witness, lasted about 10 minutes. As he walked down a hill toward his house the orb UFOs began drifting apart slowly in separate directions. He noticed that they were moving in a direction opposite the normal direction and pattern of planes approaching the airport.
“As I started walking down the hill to my house each orb went in separate directions in a slow controlled line,” the witness told MUFON. “It was odd to me that they were going the opposite direction of the landing patterns of the planes.”
The orb UFOs moved until they disappeared below the tree line and never appeared again, the witness said.
After taking a photo of the UFOs, he sent it to a friend who checked on flightradar24 whether there had been aircraft in the area that could explain the two glowing orb UFOs.
“I texted my buddy the picture and he checked flightradar24 and nothing on the app showing aircraft in the area matching the two orbs in that area,” he said.
The witness told MUFON that he had always been interested in UFOs, but that was his first sighting and he was very excited about it.
“I always look for UFOs, so I was excited that this could be my first potential sighting,” he said. “I had no other feelings other than excitement.”
“I am always skeptical of ever seeing anything like this, but this was different than anything I have ever seen before,” he added.
According to UFO blogger Scott C. Waring, commenting on his UFO Sightings Daily blog, it was unfortunate that the witness did not take a video of the orb UFOs but was only able to snap a single photo of the mysterious objects hovering in the sky.
Waring explained that a demonstration of the movement of the orbs in a video would have helped to determine what they really were.
“This sighting included two UFOs which stood out in the night sky,” Waring commented. “Unfortunately the eyewitness didn’t get any video, but only had this single photo. A video of them moving would really help determining if it was a UFO or something else.”
MUFON said its representatives in Georgia were investigating the strange case.
