|Orange, large, three-object linear formation moving south to north approx. 60 degrees above horizon.
Three-object linear formation seen on 6/30/14, approximately 21:50 Central. Objects appeared approximately 60 degrees above the horizon, moving south to north.
Objects appeared perfectly evenly spaced, maybe ten seconds apart. Size: equivalent to a pencil eraser held at arm's length. Resembled a chase formation seen two years earlier involving the ISS, Russian rocket and ESA ATV resupply vehicle, except these objects were higher in the sky (60+ degrees), larger and brighter.
Also, no ISS sightings are scheduled for this region (Huntsville, AL) until 7/12/14. All of these objects were the same color yellow-orange.
Very bright. No tail, no fireball. And no sound whatsoever. As objects moved north they gained altitude, grew smaller and vanished.
