6 Orange Orbs Travel West to East Across the Northern Sky in South Florida

At 8:45 pm, I received a phone call from my sister and her husband on their way home from dinner. They were about a half-mile away from my home and told me to go outside quickly and look at the sky.

I went outside and while facing north, I could see three orange orbs going in a straight line across the sky slowly from West to East. My sister was yelling “what are they?” and as I watched, I had no idea what I was looking at. I could hear no sound and could not judge any kind of distance. One of the orange orbs was out ahead of the other two I would say about double the distance that the second two were apart from each other. We talked on the phone for a minute or two as the objects disappeared into the eastern sky. About a minute after that, two more orbs appeared following the same path, and my sister and her husband arrived at my house as I pointed out the new orbs. My nephew was called out of the house to see these two and the four of us watched as they too disappeared into the eastern sky.

At about 8:51 a single orb appeared on the same track as the other five, we watched it slowly move across the sky to the east, and it too disappeared.

I would describe the light from these orbs as fire -like in that it was the color of fire and fluctuated like a bright flame, but did not trail behind like you would expect if a flame was moving across the sky.

Living in Florida I have often witnessed Space Shuttle Launches and other Rocket Launches from Cape Canaveral from my yard but nothing like what I saw tonight. Tonight’s lights seemed much closer and brighter than any thing I had seen before.
