12 silent orange lights.

On Sunday July 14, 2013, at approximate 2220 hours while in my home watching TV, I noticed through my sliding glass door which faces west, several orange objects fly in a single path from west to east. This parade of identical objects appeared at intervals of approximately every 2-3 minutes traveling in the exact same manner as the proceeding object.

To get a better view, I stepped outside of my home. Visibility was unrestricted, the wind was calm and all was silent among the bright stars. I was unable to hear any sound from the objects unlike normal air traffic. The flight path of the objects from the westerly horizon was approximately 45 degrees increasing to approximately 60 degrees as they traveled east.

The objects were a solid orange. There did not appear to be any detectable mass with each light. After observing this pattern continue for approximately ten minutes and seeing approximately 5 or 6 objects, I decided to get in my car and drive to the waterfront which is approximately ½ mile from my home for a better look.

Upon arrival at West Falmouth Harbor, just inside of Buzzards Bay I observed the parade of orange lights continue from west to east. There was a bright street light at the dock where I stood that did not impede the distinct orange lights. I observed one cluster of two orange lights side by side in the parade of single lights for another 15-20 minutes. In hope of a better view and to triangulate the path, I drove to Chappaquoit Beach which is approximately 1/2 mile south of the harbor dock and was unable to see any objects so I then drove north to Old Silver Beach and was unable to see any lights.

I then returned to the dock at West Falmouth Harbor and spotted 2 more orange objects.

During the course of an hour, I spotted a total of approximately one dozen similar orange lights.
