UFO sighting, night sky, 2 objects in outer space, bright orange lights, Dec. 5, 2012

From the balcony of (at that time) our house in Bangkok I saw two bright lights at the sky. Since they did not move, I took them for stars. The lights were very distant and clearly located in space (and not within the earth atmosphere).

The lights were very bright, steady (not blinking) and of orange colour. That is also why I watched them constantly for the next 15 minutes. After five minutes I remembered to me that the brightest light in the sky is Venus (after the moon). Since the lights were clearly A LOT brighter than planet Venus, I concluded that they could not be stars or planets or other known heavenly bodies. The lights were approximately 10 times brighter than Venus.

Therefore, I called my daughter and wife to look at these objects. They looked at them and confirmed my observation. My wife then called her aunt which also confirmed my observation. The aunt that was obviously not interested in astronomy left after 1 minute since she rather wanted to cook (!).

Me, my daughter and my wife continued watching the objects. Approximately 10 minutes have passed and the objects have not moved a bit.

At this point in time, one object moved away from earth very quickly. It moved on a straight line. It disappeared from sight within approx. 5 seconds. They other object moved across the night sky at the same height. It moved approx. 20 degrees within 1 second. At an assumed height of 400’000 km I estimated that it may have moved 140’000 km in 1 second or 504’000’000 km per hour.

After watching the object at the new position for another 5 minutes I went to the kitchen to have dinner.
