Saturday night, I saw a staggered line of 15 or 20 large round orange balls flying over my backyard with no sound.

On Saturday night, around 7:15pm, I went out onto my back deck to grill out. As soon as I hit the deck, I immediatly saw a line of large round orange balls, heading from north to south towards our airport. They were in a straight line as far as I could see. From left to right the sky was full of them, I would say about 15 to 20 orbs, but each was staggered behind each other, all at the same altitude, approx 1,000 to 2,000 ft above my location, and approx 75 to 100 feet apart from each other.

As soon as I saw them, I went back into the house and yelled for my wife to come out here, she came immediately and saw what I was seeing. As they flew by the last ones about 4 or 5 of them started to go dim and then they went totally dark, it was mind blowing, they had no sound and were very bright orange they had no red, green or white nautical (sic. navigation?) lights on them.

About 5 or 6 minutes later, I called 911 and reported what we saw.
