|Three bright orange orbs pass by separately, one after the other.
While the wife and I were watching TV, our son called us out to the back porch to see a large orange orb flying about 40 degrees off of the horizon north of us, flying from northwest to northeast. The altitude was probably 500-1,000 feet, and the speed around 75 miles per hour. It was slightly egg shaped, but more round than an egg. It glowed bright orange, and it looked like a small version of the sun. It moved silently away to the Northeast. Range was less than a half mile and probably more like a 1/4 mile as it passed by us. My wife, my son, and myself all saw it. I went in to get a camera and while inside my son saw a second one pass by, slightly farther away.
As it passed by it dropped off a smaller version of itself, that slowly descended to the ground. Only my son saw this one as it was a distant dot by the time I got out. But right at that time, a third orb approached from the northwest again, on about the same path, but closer than the first two. This one was less than 1/8 mile away, and you could clearly make out the slightly egg-shaped form, again glowing orange, looking like a small sun. The speed was again probably 75 mph, maybe a bit more this time.
My wife also witnessed this object. There were multiple normal aircraft small and large visible in the sky at the time.
Fumbling with my camera in the dark I didn't get it focused and taking pictures until it was well over a mile away, but using the zoom feature, I got four decent pictures. The image I will attach is a collage of those four pictures, reading in chronological order from top left, to top right, to bottom left, to bottom right.
There was a slight greenish color to the bottom of the orb by the time I got the last picture. All objects moved silently past.
