My brother and I had been walking outside of our apartment. Overhead, he and I picked up on at least 4 red/gold (perhaps orange) lit-up anomalies in the sky. They all appeared to be traveling in the same direction at set intervals, soaring by. It struck us both as unusual.

I jokingly said that perhaps it was North Korean/Chinese/USSR airplanes; a scouting party... to prepare for an invasion. He came up with something a little more realistic, perhaps they were memorial balloons, adrift in the night sky, honoring veterans or otherwise on Independence Day.

Regardless, they appeared alien. We see airplanes in the sky at night, most a lot higher than others. However, you know they're US planes with their red/blue lights... these were wholly different and there was a few of them. Worthy of alarm, at least in my opinion. I'm near-sighted, so, needless to say I couldn't see them as well as my brother, but, they were assuredly lit up and in red/gold or yellow-orange.
