On Wednesday, Aug 4 at approximately 10:30 pm my wife and I were sitting on our patio when we noticed 2 bright objects approaching from the southwest. Since we are in the flight path of the Greater Cincinnati – Northern Kentucky Airport we thought these were smaller aircraft or helicopters judging from their speed which was slower than jets.

These two objects were amber to almost orange in color and very easy to see. The size I would say was 3 – 4 times bigger than the planet Venus which is now prominent in the night skies. These 2 objects appeared to be at the same altitude but we could tell there were two separate objects.

As they got closer to us, they appeared to slow down. There was no sound coming from these objects which really got us wondering what these were. The objects stopped moving completely for about 5 to 10 seconds then they both started moving slowly upward and we watched them disappear into the clouds.

The weather conditions were windy because thunderstorms were in the area. Some low clouds were passing by but visibility was good. We are located about 15 miles west of Cincinnati near the Indiana border.
