Shape: Circle
Duration:35 minutes
15 orange glowing objects, triangle inside a circle, silently moving over New Orleans

Noticed unidentified moving light rising from the horizon in the southeast just to the left of the rising moon (about 1 hour after rising). The object moved across the sky at a steady pace and in a direct path toward the opposite horizon. When it was directly overhead, another appeared rising from the same spot just to the left of the moon. This continued until we had seen 15 objects between 22:50 to 23:25 pm Central time.

After we saw the sixth one, I began snapping photos and taking videos with both my iphone and my pocket Leica. To the naked eye, from afar, the objects appeared as a tiny white light, but as they got closer they appeared as a shimmering orange light and I thought I could see a definite circumference of either a circle or a triangle.

In one of the videos, I can hear myself say, “it looks like a triangle with rounded corners inside of a circle”.

The objects never moved “in formation”, changed direction or speed. They just moved steadi! ly across the sky one after the other in exactly the same path as the one before and all were completely silent.
