|Five glowing lights traveling at slow speeds without engine noise.
Around 7:30 pm saw 5 lights traveling in the same direction from SE to NE. One alone at first then another one, then two side by side, then one. Fairly evenly spaced almost like military planes returning from a sortie. However what caught my eye is how slow they were flying. They also were a steady glow that that cycled between a reddish orange and yellow. They then at the same point in the sky appeared to go straight up and then disappear. The other noticeable charateristic is that there wasn't any engine noise at all. Completely silent leading me to believe they weren't helicopters. I am an electrician and have wired many runways so I am familiar with airplane lights and runway lights along with FAA standards. These were not airplanes of any conventional standard.
