Location: West Des Moines, IA
Shape: Circle
Duration:3 minutes
2 red/orange spheres moving slowly appeared in des moines iowa.

We were attending a fire work show at Racoon River in West Des Moines.

I looked up and seen one glowing circle in the sky. It was moving to slow to be a plane and was NOT a firework.

A second object appeared to the left of the redish orangish glowing circle about 100 yards or so away.

One of the UFOs disapeared then reappeared a few seconds later. They were both moving west very slowly.

I tried to take video on my phone but the objects were way to high to pick up an image.

I have read a lot of the sightings posted for 7/4/2011, and they all seem to share the same exact features for what I seen.

This is the very first sighting I have ever seen and am very overwhelmed of the whole sighting and others seen what I saw.
