Colored spheres fly over Houston Texas!

On this night i saw two seperate objects. The first one caught my eye as it flew directly over me at an unknown altitude. I live about eight miles from IAH airport. I watch the planes as they take off and land on a nightly bases. If i had to estimate the the speed and altitude, I would say they were about the same altitude as the planes as they fly over, but moving at a higher speed about double the speed of the planes as they take off.

Moving from south to north this object flew directly over me and was straight above me when i noticed it. It was a pinkish orange in color, appeared to be spherical in shape although it also seemed to have more of a globular shape. The color was strange because Ive never seen a object this color. Almost as if it was a thick translucent color. Completly silent as it moved at a steady speed until it vanished into the horizon.

As i stood there trying to figure out what that was. A few minutes later another one came into view moving at about the same altitude and speed as the first one. This second one was a little darker in color more of an orangish red. Moving this time from east to west.

Now a person could say that since i live close to the airport that they were planes. These were not planes! They were completly silent, They were of a solid color by that i mean they were not flashing or strobing like the planes do. And these were not just lights either. You could actually see a a shape, almost as if they were lit from the interior with no exterior lighting.
