Duration:15 minutes
12 Large Bright Red-Orange Lights fly over Central Minnesota on the evening of April 28th, 2012.

On April 28, 2012, about 7pm in the evening, .2 separate squadrons of 6 red-orange oblong (20-40ft. in size) lights flew slowly in a northerly direction over the city of St. Cloud, MN, at about 1000ft. altitude under the cloud cover.

Each light moved independently but all on the same course, then one by one, each bright light flew north at a very high rate speed becoming a pin point of light and arcing up into the clouds.

My friend and I were about a mile away and there was no sound from the lights, the light was bright and a color I have never seen on any aircraft, a continuous light. I did not see any physical craft in the lights, no smoke , no contrails, no sound. The lights seemed to appear from no where as a group flying at the speed of single engine airplane and later at very high speed, I heard no sonic boom either, I am in my 50’s and I have never seen anything like these flying bright red-orange lights, I have seen squadrons of jet fighters flying at high altitude at night, airshows, and life-time of observing aircraft including supersonic jets and sonic booms all of which looked and sounded nothing like these flying lights.
