this is what was going on over my house
You hear this sound like: fffffffttththhhhhhhhhttttt (got that?) and look up and this big ball of color is floating over your house with arms extended over the side waving. By the time I got the camera out and replaced the batteries, they were on their way, but you get the idea. My neighbors tell me that shortly before I moved here, one landed at the end of my street.
