12 ovel objects flying east to west orange and red at a slow speed then vanished

UFO sighting in Cincinnati Ohio On Friday night October 10th my girlfriend and I were coming home after seeing a movie near Hyde Park. I was driving on Hershel Avenue in Hyde Park when I looked up and saw three orange and red objects that were round in the sky. I said to my female friend “what is that.” A few seconds later another one went by and another one followed closely behind. My female friend said “stop the car I want to get out.” With that I looked to see if there was a car behind us but nobody was on the road. She got out and I also got out looking in the general direction of the objects. There was no sound as they flew by. They appeared to be 50 or 80 thousand feet in the sky and flying a low speed. The sky was clear and there was a moon with no wind. The objects were moving from the east to the west.

We got back in the car and drove west. In the distance we could still see the objects forming a circle and following each other in sequence. They continue to glow a orange/red color and were spinning yet not moving very fast. As we headed down Erie Avenue towards Hyde Park Square we could still see the objects then they vanished.

When I got back to my female friend apartment we got out of the car and went down to the street level. I looked to the east and saw one more object coming our way. The object was smaller than the rest but had a red and orange glow. There was no sound as it flew overhead at a slow speed. Then a second later after it passed it vanished.

We went into her apartment and called Lunken Airport but they didn’t see anything or heard of any reports. Then we called local news stations, District Two Police and the Cincinnati Enquirer. All the news agencies said they never heard of anyone else seeing anything.

I called the UFO Center to report my sighting and Mr. Peter Davenport answered the phone. He told me to write down what we saw and we both needed to file a separate report to this agency. Then Mr. Davenport said see if there is anything on the news about your sighting or if anyone else saw it. The next day I looked in the papers, and looked at all the local news and there were no reports.

In Hyde Park there is an observatory not far from where we first spotted the objects. I fired an email to the head person there and they respond saying they had guests in the observatory that night but were looking in the direction of the moon. The gentleman said that there may have been a meteor shower going on at the time or what we saw may have been space junk. I have seen a meteor shower before, but the meteor past very fast overhead. I never seen anything that was red and orange that looked like a ball of light flying a low speed. It was very weird.

So far nobody has seen anything to my knowledge or nobody is saying anything. We live about 60 miles south of Wright Patterson Air Force Base, 10 miles from Greater Cincinnati Airport and 5 miles from Lunken Airport. We could not hear any sound from these objects so therefore they were not aircraft related. We both saw them and I must say it was very interesting.
