Two dull orange glowing football shaped objects with bird-like flight pattern seen by witness.

As I scanned the sky while the sun was beginning to set between ours and our neighbors houses looking for twilight stars, there came into view approaching from the South Southwest, two football shaped, dull orange glowing objects.

The houses are single-storey.

They appeared to be perhaps metallic, reflecting the setting suns light.

Their flight was bird-like, and I consciously blinked to make sure I was actually seeing what I was seeing.

Their paths crossed and they veered North as they passed just to my left as I faced North.

I estimate their height above ground to be 100 - 150 feet, above the tallest treetops, which are about 60 feet.

I estimate the objects size to be about two feet along the long axis.

They also proceeded sideways by which I mean the flight was not like a " tight spiral" of a skillfully thrown football.

The sky was clear and the planet Venus was just becoming visible.

It was still T-shirt weather.

I told my wife and she thought it no surprise with the Air Force base a mere mile away and with their mission possibly going to an all-drone base, this might not have been unusual.

However, these objects were in no way aircraft or bird shaped.

They emitted no sound and seemed only to reflect light with the dull orange glow.

I remember a sense of wonderment as I had never seen anyting like this before being a life-long skywatcher.
