Round orange glowing globes flying over Sacramento skies March 31, 2013

At about 8:45pm my friend and I went outside to load his ampliphier and guitars ine his car . As I was going into my house I noticed two lights in the western sky heading in a NE directinpon over my nieghbors house across the street. At first I thought it was the landing gear lights on an large aircraft but they were too big and rhad more of an orange hue to them. Iran inside and grabbed my hd camcorder and began filming. As the objects came nearer they flew at a level altitude and slowed .There was a low clouddeck that night of aabout 700-1000' , the objects where now ove the house on the right. Ttthey began to go upward very slowly aand appeaared to fade into the clouds. They seemedgto be about 3-5' in diameter. As they came into sightfrom the west or maybe sw sky they were traveling about 50-80 mph. Theyslowed to a few mph or hoveras they ascended into the clouds . They all came from the same approximate location and went up about the same lo! cation, perhaps a little futher east each time ..

They were silent. The closeups look as though they were almost translucent with a faint inner orb inside the larger orb and a nucleous that move around as well giving the appearance of a glowwing eyeball with the top pefectly flat. In some closeups theflat top almost looks like asolid cap of sorts covering thetop of the glowing object. Also on the shot were I am heard saying I see bats or bugs when I reviewedthis on a lrger screen later I realized it was neither. Rather it looked more like light reflecting off of the clouds aroud it or another layer around it similiar to the glass balls at a science store that you touch and the static electricity makes little lightening strikes. Inside the glass ball. I don,t knowwhat those are ca,lled but they have a large one at our local discovery museum. Itried to pan in and out. Theneighbors you hear at the start are about 100' away. I had trouble seeing my camcorder screen so I unscrewed thespotlight on the garage and later turned o! ut the porch light. I thout the last one went into the x clouds but it was behind the tree then I realized. It wasn't and filmed t till it did disappear into the clouds. Sorry my typing I isn't the best here. The other witness is my best friend I've known for oover 30 yrs. I,ve lived in my home for 13 yrs. This is not a prank or joke. This was real and I have no explanation of what we saw.
