11/23/00 observed a V-shaped and crescent-shaped object silently crossing the sky with dull or faint orangy/pink lights.

On Thanksgiving evening, about 6:15pm, we (4 of us) were leaving my sister-in-law's house after a short visit. As my husband was unlocking the car I was gazing up to the sky and commented on how clear it was that night. Just as I said that I noticed a faint light crossing the sky. I continued to look and I noticed that there were a series of faint lights (6 or 7) in a V shape. I called to my family to look up to the sky and they all saw it as well. We watched as it silently crossed the sky. After we got into the car and my husband started pulling away, I continued looking up and all of a sudden saw the same type of faint lights (this time maybe 8 - 10 "lights") in an arc or crescent shape. Only myself and my oldest daughter saw the second one since we were in the car and my husband was driving, by the time he tried to look up and see anything it was out of sight already. Even though the "lights" were faint, the "object" appeared relatively close compared to planes that you see in the sky. There was no sound either time, and there was a hint of a "shadow" where the body of this thing would be. The dull lights were orangy/pinkish on both of the sightings and were steady, not blinking/flashing - heading in a southerly direction.
