Orange glowing objects seen in skies over Wexford, Ireland.

At approximately 11:00pm on 28/02/2010 I witnessed a number of bright orange lights moving from the North West tracking a South Easterly direction.

I had just arrived home and as I got out from my car I looked up to the sky to see a large orange light. I watched for about 20 seconds as it slowly tracked from North West in a South Easterly direction.

The sky’s above us are on a busy flight path so I was used to seeing the flashing lights of aircraft in the sky. What made this sighting unusual and what captured my attention was the orange colour and the fact that it was not flashing.

The night is question was a very clear night with a full moon high in the sky and to the south.

I thought I would get some binoculars and watch the object from the rear of my house. The rear of the house is south facing. I waited outside the rear of the house expecting to see the object. After 10 – 15 seconds, there was no sight of the orange glowing object so I went to the side of the house to see where it might have been.

To my amazement I saw in total three objects of the same colour, two which were slightly less intense in luminescence.

At this point I ran back into the house to get my binoculars and called my partner and two children. We ran back through the house to the front door.

From the front of the house, which is north facing, two of the objects changed to a different path, rising in the sky and losing their luminescence. The third object continued on a south easterly track.

I followed the remaining object through binoculars for 5-10 seconds and then went through to the back of the house where again I was able to track the object on a south easterly direction.

The luminescence of the object faded as it continued south easterly direction. I did not see this as unusual as it was heading in the direction of the location of the moon, not directly at the moon!. However, I was able to continue to track the object as it moved into a south easterly direction while losing it’s luminescence.

I could not distinctly make out the shape of the object.

What was additionally so unusual was there was no sound from the object(s). Normally as aircraft pass over head their engine noise can be heard very distinctly. However on this occasion there was no sound what so ever.
