|Tonight I saw two distinct sightings.
The first one was a very bright red light. The red was basically pure red.
Half an hour later I saw four other red lights, also very bright and pure red. Absolutely no other lights like you would expect on a plane for example.
Weather was a solid cloud cover. No stars visible. There was absolutely no sound whatsoever in both sightings.
The speed of the objects was rather slow, slow enough for me to be able to use my smart phone to take two pictures (basically standard what's in the picture result) of one of the brightest objects.
Could they be flares? I would be stunned if they were because of the way they passed by. They didn't flicker. As for the color it was a steady red. I was looking north and objects went from east to west. The first object was very high when I saw it but the objects in second sightings were low and then climbed in altitude. When they would finally go out of sight, I suspect it wasn't because of distance but rather because they were entering the cloud cover.
About the speed. At first I thought it might be a helicopter but like I said above there was absolutely no sound and If I go by how bright those lights were it would have been impossible not to hear at least one of those objects. As for position lights they would have also been impossible to miss. Almost forgot but there were three other people that saw the second sighting at the same time I did. Their reaction was rather surprising. Instead of taking the time to look at the objects they "laughed them away". Go figure.
Anyway, I hope that helps.
