3 low-altitude orange globes, Denver, 4th of July, 2015.

Just before midnight, after all firework shows had finished for the night.. Partly cloudy with high Cirrus clouds, partial moon..

3 orange globes, about the size of my pinky nail at arm's lenth.. Easily big enough to resolve with binoculars or other sighting device, but unfortunately, I didnt have one ready..

3 Objects came into view from the south and continued due North. We were able to watch their entire track from almost horizon to horizon. All 3 orange globes were following the same track, about 15 seconds behind each other, and completed the horizon to horizon track in less than 1 minute. The objects were BELOW the cloud base (eliminates meteors), moving VERY fast, and made absolutely ZERO sound. Fireworks would be an impossibility because of the duration, speed, and precision track of the objects.

I am prior Air Force, so I have extensive experience in what night flight aircraft look and sound like, expecially on clear quiet nights.. My first instinct was that these were aircraft in full military power afterburners. But again, there was NO sound, and afterburners are VERY loud, especially at that relatively low altitude..

There was one other witness to this event..

First time in my life I can't explain away something I've seen.
