|Six to eight amber lights traveling in the night sky with no noise (silent)
Roughly six to eight amber/yellow glowing objects were observed in the sky, traveling from south to north at a fairly rapid rate of speed in a fairly level flight path, similar in speed to nearby aircraft that are taking off or landing from the nearby Flying Cloud airport.
These objects made no noise, were consistent in brightness and not pulsing, were not flying in a pattern around the airport and did not have any other lights (e.g., red or green flashing lights or landing lights typical of aircraft at night). There were only the amber lights.
They traveled north from our location for a minute or so and then the lights disappeared (appeared to burn out? – they weren’t far enough away to disappear from visibility).
There was one nearby jet that was traveling from south to north that then turned a right base-to-final approach to land at the airport about three miles east of the location.
In checking radar apps on my phone, there were no flights in the area that appeared on Flightradar24.com, or its iphone app, nor was there anything on Flightaware.com.
