Duration:4-5 minutes
9-14 Scattered Orange Glowing Lights Hovering Across Fresno.

I observed 9-14 orange-ish glowing objects hovering slowly in the sky around 9:40pm. They appeared to be heading from West to North towards my direction at first, but then the objects started moving southward.

The glowing objects were scattered from each other, but they were all moving in the same direction in a synchronized motion. I would guess the approximate altitude of the objects ranged from 3000 to 5000 feet in elevation.

The glowing objects started to disappear from the sky one after another even though they were at a distance that should’ve been observable if it were a plane.

I got out of my vehicle to try and record them, but my phone camera couldn’t really capture the glowing objects due to the poor lighting conditions outside.

There were no blinking signals (such as those seen on aircrafts), and I didn’t hear any type of aircraft sound. The objects were dead silent, and hovering and a constant speed which seemed to be moving much slower than typical airplanes.

I pulled up to some police officers at a stop-light 10-15 minutes after the event, asked them if anyone had called in about “weird lights in the sky” and they said no.

Approximate duration of sighting was 4-5 minutes.

This is the first time I have ever witnessed anything like this.

A little background about me: I’m a U.S. Navy veteran who has seen almost every type of aircraft there is to see during my time out at sea. I’m 29 y/o male, and I’m a Healthcare Administration major at California State University, Fresno.

Just letting everyone know that I’m not a whacko.
