Location: Elgin, IL
Shape: Sphere
Duration:15 minutes
Silent redish orange fire like spheres/ orbs ( 5 ) following the direction of the wind blowing 1-2 k feet high

Around 9:30 PM ( 22:30 PM ) in Elgin, Illinois I was walking my dog when I noticed two reddish orange fire like orbs/ spheres traveling in the night sky. At first I didn’t pay much attention until they seemed to be on a path of possible impact, they were too close to be typical aircraft as we live 30 minutes from an international airport and I am very familiar with normal air traffic patterns. Once the objects were directly over head they made no noise of any kind. They were completely silent, again eliminating the possibility of typical normal aircraft. Soon after they passed over 2 other orbs/ spheres appeared and also followed the same path. Once they disappeared, a final orb/ sphere also followed and soon disappeared. The unidentified flying objects seemed to move at the speed and direction of the wind’s blowing, traveling from southwest to northeast. When directly overhead it looked like there might be a canopy or parachute above the glowing light, but I am not 100% sure of that.
