Location: Austin, TX
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Reddish orange bright lights traveling very quickly then disappearing. Completely silent.

Two very bright reddish orange lights traveling very fast south across the Austin sky, just southwest of downtown, traveling the same path as Mopac. They were completely silent.

The lights were flying together, one ahead of the other. The second light caught up to the first light, then both lights appeared to climb (straight up), fade in intensity and vanish together in about 10 seconds. Not possible to determine altitude or distance due to night sky.

Did not appear to be any conventional aircraft or helicopter. Length of sighting approximately 1 minute, perhaps less, from our home near Zilker. Police helicopters are circling in the area approximately 15 minutes following sighting.
