Silent orange orbs fly very low and disappear.

I saw two orange orbs from my backyard.

Both were moving in different directions, one west, the other north-east.

The lights looked very low, and didn't flicker or wobble.

No sound, as one flew nearly directly overhead.

I called my girlfriend outside, who managed to witness one before we lost sight.

They followed a straight path before disappearing behind trees and houses.

I work at night at a busy airport, and I have never witnessed anything like it.

Unsettling because of their altitude and how close to home they were, and their silence.

A friend of mine several blocks to my north witnessed five orange orbs in a formation while looking my direction, on the same evening.

He watched them disappear all at once, "as if turning off an old TV." Best rational explanation I can think of is Chinese lanterns or drones, though those explanations don't satisfy me.
