|Two bright red-orange objects over Gilbert for 5-7 minutes with no sounds
Two very bright red-orange objects approached our home from the NW, crossed over us and changed directions heading E/NE. One object was slightly below cloud level and one, which appeared smaller, looked to be above the thin clouds. Both objects seemed to grow brighter from time to time and stay in formation as they moved across the sky. The sighting lasted 5-7 minutes with both objects keeping the same speed and distance as if flying in formation. The objects seemed to be going in a straight line until they were almost directly above us when the brighter of the two headed E/NE and increased its speed while the other continued directly east and began to fade. Noticed 5 possible military aircraft in formation at high altitude approx 20 min after the objects dissapeared.
