Shape: Unknown
Duration:10-15 minutes
15 to 20 red/orange glowing objects soundlessly following one another across sky from NW to NE, a few seconds to a minute apart

On August 14, 2013, around 8:30 p.m. CDT, my husband and I and two friends were standing in our friends' driveway in Evansville, Indiana, when we all noticed a glowing red/orange object in the sky, crossing from northwest to northeast. It made no sound and did not have the three lights one usually sees on an airplane.

Several seconds later, another appeared in the northwest and followed the same path to the northeast. As we watched for ten or 15 minutes, we saw at least 15 to 20 of these glowing objects following the same path at varying distances. They did not appear to be at as high an altitude as an airliner travels, but they were high enough that it was impossible to positively determine a shape. (One still snapshot taken by my husband with a telephoto lens suggested a triangular shape, red with some yellow lights on it, but I hesitate to say that that was its actual shape, due to the movement.)


This is a correction to the description submitted a few minutes ago. The direction of travel of the objects sighted was NW to SW (not NW to NE as reported earlier). Sorry for my error.
