Shape: Sphere
Duration:2 minutes
Two red/orange lights suddenly appeared over our neighborhood New Years Eve, hovered for a few minutes, then dimmed and were gone.

My husband and I were watching fireworks in the neighborhood from our driveway for New Years, and two red/orange glowing lights appeared in the sky suddenly. They were spherical in shape. The objects were flying north-west, and one appeared to be ahead of the other. The object that seemed closer was quite large, about two times the size of the private planes we normally see in the area. The other object was about the size of a small plane though. We took deep notice of the objects because we had never seen planes with a light this size or glowing this color, nor have we seen a plane appear so fast before. The object was moving slow; it looked like it was hovering in place, then slowly move in our direction, and then hover again. It was traveling very slowly and flying low; not at the height of jets; more like small planes and helicopter height. We heard no sound. I ran inside for the camera as our phone video would not capture them, but when I got back the lights were gone. Husband said the lights just dimmed and then were gone. The night was clear so we didn’t lose them in the clouds. The duration was about 2 minutes.
