bright glowing orbs over Gardendale Al

Approximately at 0504 this morning I stepped outside to smoke a cigarette and noticed a really bright light. I initially thought it was a star then I noticed it moving. After I started watching it I then noticed that there were 2 more objects sitting relatively close to the brighter one. I stated to move away from my apartment building to get a better look and the object started moving away from my sight and behind a tall group of pine trees. I positioned myself at an angle to continue observing the object when without sound it shot across the sky towards Huntsville. I turned to go back into my apartment when I realized threw light had returned at a much lower altitude and moved just above a tree line about 100 yards from where I was standing.

I told my wife about the sighting when she woke up.

This evening around 21:40 we were both outside smoking and saw a very similar object dancing around in the sky but it was much further away than the 3 I saw this! morning. This isn't a hoax or sham, nor is it an attempt for attention. I spent 10 years in the military and have seen some strange things out at sea but I have never really been an up close witness nor was I a solid believer until today.
