|Orange balls in the sky.
My wife and I were walking the dog through her parents' neighborhood in Spring, TX, at approximately 6:25 PM Central time, when we witnessed groupings of orange balls flying through the sky at what appeared to be ~2000 ft AGL. At the time, we saw several commercial aircraft at the same heigh or lower. Her parent's home is on the flightpath for George Bush Intercontinental Airport. The balls appeared to be flying at a similar altitude and heading as the airplanes. They moved fairly quickly, faster than the jets on the flightpath, but not erratically.
They did not have any blinking nav lights like an aircraft, and travelled from the Southeast to the Northwest on a line that would line up closely with George Bush to Hooks Airport (KDWH). The lights did not bob, change direction, or otherwise act erratically.
They seemed to lose intensity as they passed overhead. There seemed to be a slight twinkle as well. Similar to a glowing ball passing through the sky.
