|Bright red lights in the sky moving from west to east then fading away
My wife and I were watching the fireworks from our second story roof top.
My wife first saw a red steady light out in the distance to the north. I thought it was a helicopter taking photos of the fireworks in the area as it seemed to stop and hover in one location in the sky then move around. Did this a couple of times and it seem to just get faint in brightness and it vanished. No more than 8 minutes or so later two bright red lights were slowly traveling from west to east overhead side by side in formation. One slowed some but stayed up with the other. This lasted for three or so minutes overhead then they changed direction toward the northeast and faded into nothing. No sound as I tried hard to listen, nothing. Weather - High clouds, no open sky of stars and good visibility. Faint light from the setting sun in the west. Winds around 5-6 mph. I'm a 20 so year pilot so I know what helicopters and fixed wing look and perform like.
