Location: Crestview Hills, KY
Shape: Circle
Duration: 5-10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bright orange lights moving from south to north over northern Kentucky.

At about 1130pm, as I took the dog out back to do his business, I saw 2 bright orange circular lights moving from south to north, close together, then another one, then 2 or 3--randomly at intervals of 30 seconds or so apart- for a total of 10-12.

They moved silently, at first at a low steady altitude. They were to the west of me, not directly overhead. We live close to a major airport (CVG) but these were not moving in an usual direction for normal air traffic patterns and also there is not any commercial air traffic at 1130pm on a Sunday night at CVG. Plus, they were too close together to be aircraft.

I thought for a moment they might be helicopters, but they were completely silent. And the lights were steady, bright orange-not blinking.

I ran inside to get my husband and my phone and binoculars. By the time my husband got up to join me, we had to go out to the front to see them. They were much higher in altitude by then, still moving steadily and! directly (not erratic) in movement, still to the north. They were spread apart at various altitudes.

We observed them moving away for a couple minutes and then returned inside. I was not able to get any pictures of them.

I am a 59 year old woman, married for 34 years to a now 61 year old man. We are both college graduates. I have worked for a major airline for 35 years. My husband works part time. We have lived in our current place for 2 1/2 years. Neither of us has ever witnessed these lights before. I frequently walk the dog late at night.
