Four glowing cirlces low in the sky in south Reno.

I had just arrived home from work around midnight, from May 4 going into May 5. Low in the sky, over my neighborhood in South Reno, I saw a bright red light in the sky toward the west and a little north. The light seemed more to radiate, like heat or energy. It wasn’t a steady solid “lightbulb” type of light. It moved, sometimes hoovering, from north to south, before moving up at a 45-degree angle and dimming out high in the sky. This lasted about a minute. A second or two after this first light disappeared, three more (identical) appeared, in the same general section of sky as the first. Two of these lights traveled as a pair, a little higher in the sky than the first one, and the third lagged a little lower than the others. However, they moved across the same section of sky from north to south, hoovering a little and moving slowly before taking the same angular rise and dimming out. This lasted about 2 to 3 minutes. There was no noise, no humming or engi! ne sound. The light was steady, though it moved like it was “radiating”.

My background: I am college educated, have worked for a major airline, and as an EMT.
