Bright orbs appeared in the sky, bigger than stars and much brighter,also bigger than plane lights.

Me and my 5 class mates and teacher were driving in our school suburban. We were looking out of our windows and we saw 1 large amber colored orb. Then,the large amber orb,appeared to shoot out 4 more smaller amber colored orbs. The first large orb immediately dissapeared. The other four dimmed and left as well. They soon appeared yet again. They were all around the sky. One was in front of the suburban,dimmed and reappeared once more. And then 2 orbs,very closely together,appeared again on the right side. They dimmed and left. Then a few more appeared diagnol in front. They were higher than radio towers,about as high as helicopters usually fly, but lower than planes. They didn't give off a bright glow.There was no sound,or hum or flashes or anything. It made us all uneasy. It was big,brighter than airplane lights,brighter than the brightest stars.This happened from around 6:45pm CST to 7:30pm CST. We didn't really note the exact time,but those are closest since we got back to our school around 8:15. Although,the odd thing,it didn't appear over any city we went through on the way back to our school. We were coming home from Lindsborg,saw them on the way to Geneseo, saw them again on the way to Lyons.But didn't see them through Lyons,or the 3 miles before Lyons,or the 8 miles in between Lyons and Sterling,my town.

This is a full account of what happened. Again,5 others saw the same things. There were four airplanes not far from the 1st orb that dispensed the other 4 orbs. They were not the orbs. We also saw two airplanes that looked like they were fueling up or something.They were very close. These were not the orbs either.They are just other aircrafts we saw the same time we saw the orbs.
