Black Smoke/Orb

Dark Forces, High Weirdness, Thin Places


JULY 2008


I’ve never talked about this before for fear of sounding utterly insane. In saying that, even though I witnessed it, I still have a hard time believing or understanding what I saw. — Around 10PM at night I witnessed what appeared to be black smoke coming from an apartment building a few blocks north. I was immediately confused because it did not move like anything I’ve seen in the sky. Best way to describe the movement of this “black smoke” is like when black ink drops into water. It was swirling, moving in multiple directions, and the color of was blacker than anything I’ve seen before. After a few seconds the “black smoke” turned into a small glowing orb . The orb hovered in the sky for a couple of seconds, then made three zig zag motions, it hovered in the sky for a few seconds, and then shot straight up into the atmosphere. This incident lasted approximately 1-2 minutes. I’m only sharing my story in hope of finding a reasonable explanation for this.
