Two bright bluish-white Orbs spotted over Broomfield, Colorado on the night of September 3rd, 2017, heading south.

My son (aged 32), wife (aged 59) and I (aged 60) were sitting on my son’s back porch, smoking cigars and talking when I noticed a bluish white orb moving from north to south. It appeared to be moving at 150 mph and at an altitude of 5,000 feet above ground. This was estimated by judging against planes lining up for landing at DIA. It did not emit a sound and had no flashing lights. The orb moved at a steady speed and heading. We followed it with binoculars until it was lost behind trees and houses. It was tracked for about 15 minutes. After about five minutes of discussing what we might have just seen, another orb on a similar size, shape, heading and speed was spotted. We were able to get some pictures and video of the second orb. We could not discern any structure to the shape but we are reasonably sure it was not a hot air balloon due to the duration of the flight and perceived size of the object. Plus we checked wind directions at various altitudes and! all were in different directions from the orbs flight path. The sky was clear.

I am a former Air Force Nuclear Officer and very familiar with aircraft and flight characteristics. This sighting did not fit the normal flight profile.
