Shape: Circle
Duration:5 minutes
Two orange bright circular objects kept going back and forth in the sky, then disappeared, when the clock hit 12 and it was new years.

Me and my friend were walking home, right before it hit new years. I had asked ly friend what time it was and he said it was 11:53 as i remember. We were walking up the street, he was texting, i was looking up at the sky wanderuosly and noticed a bright orange circular light. I screamed at my friend "look! Look!" And pointed to it, he ignored me and kept texting. I looked back up and another one appeared and kept moving closer then went back real fast, I then ran to him and turned him around and said "look!" And pointed again. His face changed to a lost expression and he asked "what is that?" And I said idk I think it might be a meteor, it was really bright and getting closer, the other one stayed in place. We tried to run (thinking it was a meteor striking earth) and kept looking at it. I noticed one of the lights got dimmer, and it was any airplane or meteor. It looked like a cell, only the dot in the center was red and the shell around it was orange, afte! r getting dim they both disappeared out of nowhere. The most strange part about this is that right when they disappeared we heard a bunch of people screaming "happy new years!" As if they disappeared right when it went from 2011 to 2012
