bright orange lights in the sky

it wasent accually me who witnessed the ufos but it came from a very trusted friend who i would trust my life on him. there have been many sitings around dumfries recently, especialy in the rural areas. my friend noticed at the side of his eye a bright object hovering between 1300 and 1500 feet in the air producing a huming sound. the bright light seemed to come and go as if the light was rotating. he also says that it very slightly changed colour. this ufo was soon met with another. this one looked the same but flew away at an atonishing acceleration with little noise. you may think this is a hoax but i assure you, my friend was very sceptical of ufo's untill then, and he is a very close friend who i know would not lie about this or axagerate.

other sightings that i have seen is orange lights in the sky. i have saw a few of them. one time i was outside getting tools from my dads van when i saw a bright orange light in the sky, it looked like a star but noticeably closer and brighter. after watching it for a few minutes i went inside to get my torch. when i came back out the dot had dissapered. this has happend about 4 or 5 times and it seems more and more likely to be something intelcuall e.g. the last couple of sightings were very close to the village i live in, 1 mile or less away, and seemed to move across the sky when i either walked or decide not to look at it. this is not some eye trick as i sat at a bus shelter at 5:30am in the morning before going to work one day, when it was still dark, and i saw one of the orange lights. it seemed to come out of nowhere because i had been looking at the sky before hand and never noticed it. I sat watching it, and it only moved to a different location in the sky when i did not look at it. these distances were probably around 0.66 to 1 mile apart. it was difinately not any type of air craft i have ever seen and it certinly never acted like one. e.g no engine noise, it seemed to "hover" and moved large distances in short periods of time.
