Duration:10 minutes
Whatched non blinking orange lights do tricks in the early night sky.

It was about 6:30 in the evening.I was outside behind the house when i noticed just over the horizen a bright star.I thought it was venus or mars but it started to move to the right.It went a little ways stoped then i saw it shoot away. It came back flew to the right agin then made a circle then flew 5 seconds back to the left then just dissapeared.A minute later i saw 3 or 4 of them alot further away.Well i decided i should go in and tell my mom and dad. Dad was sitting in his recliner and said "yea i saw it too" acting not as excited as i was. He had ben outside just before me.Well they went outside and i brought binoculars and were there but further away,flying in back and forth eratic patterns.One flew a little closer for a bit then dissapeard. We could see them eraticly and seemingly slowly fly away. What i saw n the binoculars was a, i guess a sphereical orange light .Not blinking.One time it looked liked one of them had a wide short beam of white light coming out of the top.Another time the long triangulated or sphereical light was sitting at a 45 degree angle.Well they were getting to far away to really see them so we went back inside.The whole length of time was mabye 15 minutes.We really have no idea what they were.This is first time i have ever seen anything unexplainable in the sky.I have always ben interested in the unexplainable things like ufo,s and bigfoot.I know bigfoot could not exsist,I know its all a hoax but still watch any thing about it .I dont really know why.This ufo sighting happend about 3 hours ago. I knew about this website by websurfing but never thought i would get to submit any thing.I,m going to call the local airport tomorrow to see if they know what the lights were.I bet you they dont.Let me add this ,i coulndnt see a definant shape of the objects ,just glowing orange lights.Thru the binoculars when one was fairly close it looked like a long traingulated sphereical orange light .I couldnt see what the light was coming from .As far as it emitting a wide short beam of whitish looking light out of the top of it , i,m really not sure about that as i was trying to focus the binoculars,but it sure looked like it did.
