Invisible 'V' sighting

This event happened a few years ago, but I did not know this website existed at the time. There were actually 2 other events that proceeded this one which I will explain later. I was out walking my dog on a bright starlit night with a few high level clouds. I was stargazing when I noticed a visual distortion about 60 feet above me. It was similar to a ripple in a smooth clear pond except it had a distinct 'V' shape leading edge. It was transparent and I could see the clouds above it but no stars until the 'V' moved about 40 feet when they would reappear. I concluded that would be the trailing edge. The 'V' angle was about 135* and 100+ feet wingtip to wingtip moving around 5 mph due north. At first I thought maybe it was an illusion so, I turned away and focused on the house next to me and then returned my gaze back to the 'V'. It continued its northerly flight with no sound or lights until my dog and I lost sight of it behind the tree line. Early the next evening, two A10 (??) military jets traveled the same south to north route at tree top level shaking everything in the house.

I called the police to find out what was going on but they said no else had reported the flyover and had no information.

Two weeks prior to this sighting, while again walking my dog about 1 hour before sunset, a stationary bright orangish globe was in the south sky at maybe 2000 to 3000 feet. It started to move slowly west toward the setting sun. After about 30 seconds it moved almost vertical at a blazing speed and was beyond sight within 3 seconds. At the time, I thought it was probably an effect of the sun getting low on the horizon. But, the color was very different and somewhat similar to a sodium-vapor lamp. Two days later, my wife and I were eating an early dinner around 4 PM at a nearby restaurant. We were sitting next to a west facing window and I started to described the strange orangish globe to her. We both casually turned to l! ook out the window and there was the globe I was describing at! some di stance away moving east toward us. It's speed was fast but not unusual and we lost sight of it behind some buildings. No other sightings have occurred since then.
