Omaha,Nebraska eye witness sighting orange and red light that flashed white light small red lights flew over and two red lights flew

I went outside my apartment building at 4 am on 6-12-2012. I live in Omaha Nebraska. I looked into the northwest sky and had noticed an orange and red light high in the sky.

I could not tell how high in the sky it was. It looked like it was the size of Venus when it was viewable in May 2012, But it was too low in the sky to be Venus. To gauge the distance I would have to say it was, at least from my perspective, least five miles northwest of my corner of 19th and Douglas st.

As I looked at it it would pulse orange and red. Sometimes it would flash a bright white light. It just hovered in the sky motionless. After walking three blocks west on Douglas which took about 10 minutes in a casual walk, I had noticed a bright red light, a much smaller light, had flew from the south and flew in an arch over the orange and red light and I had lost track of it. After that happened about 15 minutes later I saw two red lights flying side by side heading east. I could hear a helicopter flying around behind me but I could not see it. I saw the red lights that flew together as they passed over my head. They did not blink or flash they were at a constant glow. The red was like the color of crimson.

I looked back at the red orange light in the sky still motionless. I watched it for about 15 more minutes and there was no movement, I could still hear helicopters, but they were not close to the object as I could tell. I walked back to my apartment, which took about 10 minutes and went to the roof of my building.

There are eleven floors on my building and I went to the roof, which opens at 5am. I went to the roof to see if I could still see this light. It was still there. From higher up I could see that it was far too low in the sky to be celestial. The sun was starting to come up and it was harder to see but it was still there. I cant quite gauge the distance from me it was, but if I may submit a photo showing the building and where it was in the sky in relation to the building it would be easier for me to explain.

It slowly moved northwest and slowly disappeared from sight. Sighting ended about 5:15am on 6-12-2012
