10-20 orange spheres of light viewed by 8 witnesses from Ogden, Utah in the evening .

I was in downtown Ogden, Utah, coming out of a building to the parking lot where several other people stood very excited about something in northwestern sky. As I looked up in that direction I saw at least 8 spheres of orange lights. One man was attempting to film this with his digital camera (which was unsuccessful). He was looking through the zoom lens and said they looked really big in relation the foreground. The men present also said there had been at least 15 lights earlier but some had already dimmed.

As we watched, we saw a small plane heading south to the Ogden Airport. The lights appeared to move up and spread out more. They all moved in a horizontal independent motion with no sound. One of the men who was there first stated he saw them "pour out" of a spot in the sky 10-12 minutes earlier.

As I studied the balls of light I could see that the orange glow was of nothing like I have ever seen. It seemed to have an organic quality with a rich color and no pulsing.

All of us felt we were being watched.

Then to our amazement the lights snapped into geometric star formations. Most of them drew into the Orion constellation.

The remainder of the spheres spread out over our heads. When they moved in this way, we all felt uneasy, as it was such an intelligent action.

At that point all of them started to fade their color and with the naked eye you could see a dim metallic surface on the spheres like the way the dark side of the moon glows. Within two minutes they kept fading out to be barely visible and then it was stars in their place.

Note: There are another group of witnesses who reported this occurrence which was posted that evening.
