3 glowing orange orbs in the night sky traveling south to north slowly without sound about 5 minutes apart, in Newbury, Ohio

At approx. 10:15 pm, 8/3/17, my wife saw from her bedroom a softball size orange glowing round orb in the night sky, traveling without sound from south to north, taking about 20 seconds before out of viewable area.

She called to me, stating what she saw, and I thought nothing of it, till she saw a second orb same as the other, so I went outside and just saw it as it went out of view.

Within about 5 more minutes a third orb came from the same location and I got a good look at it. As mentioned, it was an orange glowing orb, undulating light from bright to less bright, traveled south to north without sound and took around 20 seconds to be out of sight. It seemed perhaps 500 or so feet in the sky, moved in a straight line and seemed softball size.

I called the Geauga County sheriff department and reported the scenario. They said no one else had called any thing in. A sheriff vehicle stopped by and I related the above to the deputy again.

I am a retired State of Ohio police officer, with over 25 years duty.

It was a clear sky with some distant lighting, and the orbs were clearly viewed also.
