|Two bright orange spheres headed w/sw were sighted in Aptos, California, at 11:15 on July 23, 2015.
Two bright orange lights appeared in the eastern sky, about 5 degrees apart. They were headed in a west/southwesterly direction about twice as fast as the other visible airplanes at the time. When viewed through the binoculars (7X35) they looked like spheres lit from within and the light source appeared to be at the relative top of the sphere to me.
My friend who also looked through the binoculars saw the light at the bottom of the sphere. We watched them long enough to call to our friend sleeping upstairs, have him get out of bed, come to the balcony, view the objects with us for maybe 45 seconds more before they began to dim. One sphere appeared to stop and then head 90 degrees from its first trajectory. A few seconds later they both faded to nothing.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke at length via telephone with the witness, and she sounded to us to be quite eloquent and sober-minded. We suspect that she is a very good witness. PD))
