|Two orange lights traveling west to east of Central California
Shortly after 8 p.m. a few of us were sitting in the backyard when I noticed coming from the west were two objects that were bright orange in color. As we noticed them traveling through the air we noticed they were traveling what seemed to be about the same speed as a jet airliner if not just a little faster. They appeared to be flying well under what a jet airliner would be cruising at.
The second light was trailing the the first one by a little distance, perhaps a mile or two at the most. As they passed over our area there were no jet sounds. No propeller sounds. It was complete silence. The neighborhood was silent so if there were sounds from a jet we would have heard them.
After they passed overhead we then ran to the front yard to continue watching them. They were still bright orange at this time and still no jet sounds. We watched them for another 30 seconds before one went to a dimmer orange and then a few seconds later the second one dimmed.
At the time of this sitting the sun was well below the horizon, and the sky was just about black. Stars and a passing by satellite could be seen at this time.
