UFOs in North Canton?

Couple tells News Channel 5 about their sighting

Here's some weird news for you:

Instead of seeing fireworks in their backyard on Sunday night, a North Canton couple said they saw what could have been a UFO, according to News Channel 5.

"These two objects floated by and then two more floated by and a short time later, two more floated by," Joanne Damico told Channel 5.  She said the objects looked like orange-colored globes.

John Damico told Channel 5 the objects were too quiet to be airplanes, and they didn't look like them either.

The Damicos had a similar sighting in 2009.

Channel 5 contacted astronomer Clyde Simpson at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, who said he couldn't identify them as being anything other than "orange dots on a black field."  And since they appeared on July 3, Simpson said there's "no reason to think they were anything other than fireworks."

PS, I am not at all a nutso, I might add! :) I'm a normal, married, well-grounded, working guy....and I'm definately not saying I've seen an extraterrestrial ship. It's just not something that I've ever seen, nor could easily explain.

I heard they were sky lanterns that give off an orange glow, at least in this case!

They are part of a fireworks display. I just saw them in Florida. They look like laterns. In the sky they are red with an orange glow inside. They start out in the sky looking small and when they come down they look like a pink trash bags. Sorry no UFO's

My husband and I saw the orange floating globes from the track at Kent State Stark the night of the Jackson Community Festival fireworks. I reported them to MUFON but we all thought they might possibly be Chinese lanterns, if not UFOs. I also called a Jackson policeman that night to ask about them but at that time, no one else had reported anything yet.
