Duration:3+ hours
Bright orange object in the northern sky moved and was joined by another similar object; both moved away after 3+ visits.

December 31st, 2011 During the early evening hours while standing on our deck at home in Marysville, WA, we observed a distant, bright orange glowing light in the northern sky that seemed to move from right to left across the dark sky. It would remain in one spot for about 10 minutes then would disappear. After 3 of these similar episodes over a short period of about 90+ minutes, another was seen to rise and move towards the other similarly colored object in the sky. Both eventually disappeared as they individually moved away at a distance the made it seems as though they moved away at a fast speed.

Our first thought was it was a helicopter hovering, but we could not hear any engine or noise. It resembled a large object on fire at times.

As I am writing this, my wife observed another object with a similar glowing color that moved across the northern sky from right to left, then disappeared after about 10 minutes. The time now is 8:30pm PST just north Marysville, WA.
