Shape: Light
Duration:3 minute's
While sitting outside with a friend, looking out west into the distance I saw an orange light moving southeast towards us. This little orange ball of light was definitely at high altitude. I’m very big with aviation so the first thing I noticed is that it was not blinking any colors or white lights, like the aircraft around it near the same altitude were.

Me and my friend watched the mysterious orange light, which I thought was just a plane, flying across the sky. As soon as it all most came over us the orange ball of light stopped and suddenly faded away.

In shock, my friend and I waited for 5 minutes looking around the sky for the little orange ball of light that was right above us a moment before, but could not seem to find it again. Then suddenly me and my friend spotted 2 more moving objects moving northwest were to little white dots, looked like stars almost, again very high altitude but seemed very close for high altitude aircraft.

The 2 little white lights that were not as bright as the orange light. They again were way to close then anything I have ever seen, and were moving at the same speed same directing.
