0:00 04/23/08 Newport Oregon High Flying Objects with Red Halo/Haze @ High Speed, No Sound

At approximately midnight I was outside looking at the stars. I noticed an extremely highflying object moving east off the ocean then quickly changing course proceeding southwest. The object had an enormously large red haze or halo around what looked like a star, traveled at fast speeds with no sound. Because the object was flying so high, this red halo/haze was the only way my eye could keep tracking its position and movements which I consequently lost sight of behind high clouds. A moment later I tracked another object starting at the same position as the first, again showing a red haze/halo around it and followed the same course.
