Duration:30 minutes
Orange lights appear over Eau Claire, WI on September 10, 2013.

At approximately 2215 hr, I was sitting on the end of my driveway in Eau Claire, WI, (USA)(lat N44^ 51' and W91^ 30'), when I saw 8-10 bright orange lights approaching from the west, from approximately 260 deg. These lights appeared to be following the lead light.

My upward angle of perception was approximately 120 deg due to trees to the west and to the east of my location. There were broken clouds, height 3000 ft ???

The bright orange lights were above the broken clouds and it took approximately 1 min from the time of first perception to the time they disappeared. The lights appeared to have a very faint white light that was traveling with them behind the second or third orange light, and resembled a very faint white star that was very far away.

I watched this group of orange lights as they disappeared from my perview, a few minutes later, more appeared. This continued for several minutes, ending at approximately 2245 hr. During this time, there were absolutely NO SOUNDS DETECTED. In addition, they were moving too fast to be "Chinese Lanterns."
