Pasadena Couple Capture UFO Fireballs On Video

Pasadena UFO Fireball  Video Still

PASADENA Great balls of fire.
     At about 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, Charles Marcum and his girlfriend were on the balcony of their condominium in Pasadena when they saw a round, fiery object traveling slowly across the sky.

"She turned the same time I did and I said, 'What the heck is that?'" Marcum said. "It looked like a fireball."

Marcum scurried to the bedroom to get a camcorder and started taping the object. It traversed the horizon in a direction that appeared to be north to south, and was at the point of disappearing when another one appeared from the north, Marcum said.

As he did the first, Marcum followed the object with his electronic eye, and was about to turn the machine off when it, too, was about to vanish. Then a third one appeared, he said.

"I noticed something strange," Marcum said. "They were all spaced at about the same space between each other, at the same altitude, and were traveling at the same trajectory and speed."

"I'm almost 64 and I've never seen that," he said. "I thought it was man-made because it was following a pattern."

Authorities had no explanation for the objects, however.

"We can't speculate as to what they were," said Lt. Rebecca Heyse, spokeswoman for MacDill Air Force Base. All of the base's aircraft has been accounted for and they are all on the ground before 11 p.m., she said.

Marcum is curious as to why no one else has reportedly seen the objects.

"I am absolutely floored that the phones weren't ringing off the hook at the police department and fire department and so forth," Marcum said. "I can't believe it. It was a nice clear night, a full moon and no wind."

A dispatcher who worked Wednesday night said there were no reports on the objects that came into the county dispatch system.
