|4 silent objects at night each with 4 large red non-blinking lights moving east to west near Lake Okeechobee, Fl
Took my dog outside about 10:00 pm Friday, 12/22/17 and saw 2 very dark red bright objects in the dark sky coming toward me east to west. There was no sound at all even though they seemed to only be as high as a small plane might fly. Each seemed to have 4 large red lights that did not blink. The lights defined their shape, 2 behind 2 that almost touched. Could have been a square shape. One was a short distance from and a little ahead of the other, and not wavering from their path.
I watched them fly overhead until out of sight and then saw 2 more coming from the same direction appearing very much like the first 2 and moving in the same path. There were a few stars out and also a plane flying north to south so high it was barely visible. It probably took 4-5 minutes for each pair to move from first sighting to out of sight. I found it amazing that there was no sound in the quiet night for such large objects.
I retired after 27 years with the Okeechobee County Library System.
