These were 6 or 8 ORBS not just lights.

I was letting the dog out for the night, when a coyote howl called my attention to the SE area. In the night sky there were 6 to 8 ORBS reddish in color moving silently to the NNW. the were over the Tucson mid-town area. Davis Monthan AFB is in that area.

I thought at first it was the Pima County Patrol aircraft (a turbo prop). However it was all red ORBS not red and green NAV lights nor did they blink. Also, the Sherriff's aircraft has white strobes anti-collision markers.

The object moved NNW then without a stop, retraced its path. In a few more seconds it started straight UP. It was a steady glide at no "Super sonic Speeds" just a fast rate until it was undiscernible from the stars. It was a New or full moon and there was a reddish star or planet at the moon's 8 o'clock.

I tried to make my own investigation and am not convinced that a "Drone Octicopter: was the object, because the ORBS didn't have border "FUZZ" as the lights in my area have, ie: stop lights, aircraft & tower markers. Furthermore, the SCALES would not support a toy aircrafts size. I had very good sight reference points.

I tried to make a report to MUFON but they said " you have done your own research".
