|Multiple, spherical orange lights seen over Oklahoma City
From the patio of a restaurant on Lake Hefner in Oklahoma City at approximately 22:30 I saw what appeared as 4 orange spherical lights traveling from North to South, spaced much like aircraft approaching an airport for landing, except they all appeared to be at the same altitude. The speed appeared to be consistent, at first, with an aircraft. However, there were no red or green wing tip lights and no strobe. I estimated the altitude to be approximately 4,000 feet.
I kept my eyes peeled on the objects hoping to get a more detailed look as they got closer, but before the first object was closer than +/- 2 miles, it began to ascend at approximately a 35° angle to the horizon. The orange color faded and the size of the object diminished until it took on a star-like appearance and within a few seconds disappeared. The three objects following took the exact same path.
Moments later there were three more orange lights which took the exact same path. Following that, a few moments later, there were three more. Two took the same path as the previous 7, but the third disappeared from view due to obstruction of line of site by buildings, and appeared to take a different path.
There was no noise associated with these objects and they were never close enough to clearly delineate a shape.
