Shape: Light
Duration:1 hour
6 sightings of red-orange crafts over Billings, MT, July 4th, 2011, 10pm to 11pm.

On the evening of July the 4th, approx. 10:15 PM. Over the Yellowstone River.

Myself and my wife both observed from our home red-orange crafts appear in the far southwest sky, and slowly move and hover over Castle Rock Park during the fire works show. There were at least 6 separate crafts that would appear and move slowly, then disappear at the cloud to the north-northwest, and almost instantly reappear to the south west again and again.

This event lasted til 11pm.

I cannot explain what it was, but it was not fireworks or any aircraft I have ever seen. Its movement was smooth and deliberate, 1 craft hovered for 15 minutes before heading into the cloud, which was the only cloud in the sky that night.
