Two Unknown Silent Aircraft With Reddish Orange Light Observed Over Zanesville Ohio

On September 1, 2013, at 21:33 eastern daylight savings time, my brother and I were sitting out on my front porch.

My brother suddenly stopped his conversation and said "look, look" I looked at the south western sky near our hospital at only 1000-1200 feet or so we observed a silent craft that we could not identify the shape of the craft but both commented on the craft's reddish orange single light that really did not appear to have enough illumination to really see much ahead of itself.

That's when we realized that there were actually two crafts flying in offset formation.

We saw the trailing craft first and then observed the lead craft. At that height, we should have heard some kind of engine noise leading or trailing.

Neither craft had the usual red and green blinking light or bright white strobe that you see with typical aircraft.

As the crafts moved overhead, we went around to the back deck and by that time, the crafts had accelerated almost as if they knew we were observing them.

The reddish orange light caused me to remember a similar craft that my daughter had observed back in 2004 in October.

Very unusual, I wonder if the reddish orange light was some sort of thermal imaging or night vision equipment.

It might put one in mind of a dark room developing lamp or maybe some type of mylar photo correction film. Just speculation at this point.
