|When leaving for work, I saw two orange, glowing objects in the sky. They were in the shape of a cylinder with lights in the bottom that formed an x.
When I was leaving for work at 06:00 I saw two orange glowing objects in the sky. They appeared to be about 3/4 of a mile away and about 200 feet off the ground. I am a commercial pilot and flight instructor and can judge altitude and speed well. they were in the shape of a cylinder much like a soda pop can. I judged them to be about 15 to 20 feet in height and 10 feet in diameter. The bottom had lights on it in the shape of an x. The bottom stayed stationary while the top oscillated in a circle. It was moving at about 10 miles per hour at first, but as it got higher, it,s speed increased. It climed to an altitude of about 1500 feet above ground level and a speed of about 40 to50 miles per hour. I watched it through my 10 power binoculars for about 10 minutes. Finally one disappeared and then about a minute afterwards the other one disappeared from sight. It was very cloudy and could have gone into the clouds.
