Shape: Sphere
Duration:10 min.
7 orange orbs flew across the sky one at a time in the same path, appeared out of nowhere, and faded away.

On the evening of Christmas day I was told that I needed to quickly come outside. I saw a orange sphere traveling across the horizon from west to east. The object made no sound at all and moved much faster than the wind could carry it. It was moving slower than a plane but fast enough for me to tell that it was being propelled by something. after about 15 seconds it disappeared. Then another one appeared in the western part of the horizon. It took the exact same path as the first orb, and faded away in the east. I observed a total of 5 of these orbs traveling across the sky in the same way. The person who told me to come outside saw a total of 7 orbs. There were a total of 4 people that witnessed this. It was the weirdest thing that I have ever seen. I have been trying to figure out what these were. There is no possible way that these were Chinese lanterns. They were moving way too fast, and they were following a straight horizontal path.
