Weird discoball like things flying above the Netherlands

This is a string of events but I'll be referencing to the latest 'sighting' since it is the most recent, and memorable. As it happened a few minutes ago.

Also the reason I'm writing this. Because I had an uncanny thing happen that made me think twice. I'd still explain the first sighting I saw which happened around 15 January 2016, 20:00~ And is probably the most special one, apart from my own experience with the latest sighting.

I went outside to get some water from the car. I have bottles of water stored in the car. When I need to get some bottles I simply walk to the car. It stays cold that way and I don't have to bring them inside, heat them up unnecessary refrigerate them again ect. When I wanted to open the backside of the car I took a second to look into the sky and I saw so many stars. The longer I looked the more stars I could see. This is an unfamiliar sight to me. But the sky was very clear this day.

At this moment I suddenly saw something moving in the sky, it had a bright white and red flashing light to it. A plane I first thought, obviously. However it was on a very strange attitude. It seemed much lower than a normal aircraft. It was hard for me to pin down mentally at that moment at what kind of attitude it was flying. There was just something uncanny about it. I can't quite put it to words what it was.

At this moment, which was maybe 10 seconds after I had initially looked into the sky I noticed another 'thing' in the sky. It was exactly the same just at a different location in the sky. They were flying towards each other and I kept looking cause I thought they would collide. They seemed to fly past each other though. After that I saw another one, and then another one, and another one. I saw at least 5, across the sky. Before I stopped looking. They seemed to be flying symmetrical of each other. And all moved at a constant speed.

Although I was confused about what I saw, I didn't think too much of it.

3 Days later I was laying on my bed watching a movie. In the corner of my eyes I can see my window. (In the attic) It was around 3AM when a very bright light caught my eye. I instantly recognized it from my earlier encounter. I walked over to the window to look at it.

This time I could see much clearer what I saw. It was much closer. (I've been here for years and I've never seen a plane or flying object like this before) It was flying on a very low attitude compared to air planes. However there was no sound to be heard at all. It was flying in a straight line and kept going until it would disappear in the horizon. There was only one that I could see at this time.

Now what makes me write this report is because something really weird happened while I was watching it fly away into the horizon; it suddenly moved mid air like a gyroscope. This really send chills trough my spine because at this point I realised I've either gone crazy or seen something that to me is definitely a unidentifiable flying object.

A description of how it looked is as followed: It had a constant dull red light at the back side. (Back side being the opposite direction it was moving towards). A red strobing bright light at the front. And 2 or 3 bright white flickering/strobing lights at the back.

Do note that these lights also were very uncanny. Very bright.

While writing this I've seen it fly by another few times on the same path around 3 times, within an hour.

I'm not claiming I saw something extra terrestrial or something. Or anything special at all. I just can't explain what I saw that's all I know. Perhaps they were drones from the local government scanning the area, or whatever. I don't know.

But someone linked me to this page so that's why I'm writing this.

If this turned out to be something obvious explainable to you, that's fine. like a new airliner trajectory or something. I'm not here for any drama. I just want to know what it is.

PS: I checked animals responded because for some reasons all the birds in a local park started screaming a few times this night. This happens when they are disturbed. I know because sometimes I light fireworks there and the same thing happens.

Not saying it is related, but just letting you know.

Also a weird strange humming sound in the sky the last few days. Across the country actually. But when I saw the thing I didn't hear nothing. Still letting you know though.
