Ten orange bottomed objects seemed to shape-shift, one blacked out its light as it swooped down over the city.

I noticed three or four orange dots in the sky while driving west. Something seemed out of the ordinary, so I pulled over into the first metered parking spot on the north side of the street.

I sat in the car just watching to see if the objects had blinking lights. I saw orange lights pulsating very slightly, but no other lights. I called my wife to see if she could spot them, she and the neighbors were able to see them (the neighbor’s friend took out his phone).

That is when I noticed a few more objects coming over the mountain range in the direction of the sunset (which had set about 30 minutes beforehand).

I hopped out of the car and crossed the road to the south sidewalk on the street. I tried to call my friend who drives taxi and always has a camera on him, he didn't answer. I could see the silhouette of a couple of the objects, they looked like monolithic type pillars (square four sided rectangles pointing straight up and down lengthwise).

At this point I noticed the orange lights where on the bottom of the objects. They seemed to all go different directions, with two sets of two going in the same directions (north and south). One kept a west to east direction and got fairly close to my location. The orange glow was in a ring shape on the bottom of the object.

The object still traveling west to east shut off its single orange “light” as it moved over the city. I could make it out in the still slightly lit sky. The object looked like a pyramid spinning, almost slowly. It slowed and lowered in altitude. It seemed to be within a mile of me and larger than a large size van.

When it was due south of me, the object had leveled out and begun to fly over just south of the downtown area. The object rose slightly and sped up as it started to gain altitude. I then lost track of it behind trees and houses. I looked to see if any of the other objects were still visible. They were not.
