Reddish Orange Orbs, Very Large Moving Slowing Across Owensboro, KY sky

On Saturday night, July 2, 2011, at approximately 8:00 or 8:15 p.m. I was driving back to my mother's from picking up some fast food. I was staying with her over the 4th of July weekend. I saw 3 reddish-orange orbs. They were very large.

At first I thought they were from cell phone towers, so I did not think too much of them. As I mentioned, they were very large and they were not blinking as cell phone towers normally do.

So I thought I'd pull over on the side of the road in her neighborhood and see if they moved. To my surprise, they were moving very slowly across the sky. The lights were sort of oval in shape. The center was primarily reddish orange but there was a whitish or lighter color outside of the orange color. There was no noise whatsoever.

I watched them for approximately 3 minutes as they moved across the sky. A car pulled in the neighborhood, so I needed to move my car. When I finally reached my mother's house I couldn't find them again.

I have a keen interest in UFO's and sightings, and I tried to think of everything I could to explain what I saw. The lights did not behave like traditional air craft lights. They were much to big and they were not blinking. Plus, I believe that aircraft would've moved faster across the sky. They were not lights from a cell phone tower or from a satellite or star. I'm telling you, these lights were very large.

I wasn't going to report this until I spoke with my father today. He said that he saw something similar last night in his area of town. Apparently, he was watching some fireworks with his wife and neighbors and they saw them as well. He said he even said, "Hey, do you see that?" to his neighbor about them.

That's when I knew this was a significant event and that I needed to say something. Be it extraterrestrial, military, or some other phenomenon, something out of the ordinary was going on that night.
