Location: Raleigh, NC
Shape: Sphere
Duration:3 minutes
Two silent, pulsating red orbs slowly moving due north near downtown Raleigh at low altitude.

I witnessed two reddish/orange (color was pulsating) spheres traveling across the horizon at a slow rate of speed in a direction vector approximately due North. From my location, the estimated distance of the orbs were approximately less than 1 mile at an altitude of approximately 1000 ft. They moved in tandem, one trailing the other, but still within close proximity of the lead sphere. They emiited no sound. At first glance, I thought they could be aircraft approaching RDU Airport, but realized no noise after a few moments had passed, and the light emission was much greater than normal markers and strobes on a typical aircraft.

The weather was clear and cold. Stars were clearly visible in the background. I see a lot of air traffic overhead and am confident in my ability to identify various military and civilian aircraft. These flying objects did not display any visual or audible characteristics of any military or conventional aircraft. Conclusion.....UFO's! Without a doubt!
