Location: Brandon, MS
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
2 strange formations of continuous red-orange, silent craft in the night sky.

My family and I observed 2 separate formations of red-orange "aircraft" flying what appeared to be east-northeast tract. The formations exhibited a continuous red-orange color. I'm former military and civilian and military aircraft typically have flashing lights while flying at night.

The first formation were 3 craft that traveled the same east-northeast tract for approximately 5 minutes at different speeds before disappearing in the clouds. The second formation were also 3 craft flying the same tract at different speeds and also disappeared in the clouds.

All 6 craft did not produce any noise. We originally thought the craft were drones; however, drones can not travel that distance without losing signal. These lights were not fireworks as firework lights do not travel that distance and then gain additional altitude after their report.
