Series of 6 silent fiery-orange lights moving across night sky

June 25, 2011 Fort Mill, SC, (approaching Charlotte, NC) Tonight, right at 10:00 P.M. as I was driving towards Charlotte, NC, from Fort Mill, SC a series of six deep orange glowing objects appeared in the night sky. They were moving in a linear fashion, and although some distance apart seemed to be following each other in formation and moving in a north/northeast direction.

At first I though it must be a series of airplanes moving towards Charlotte airport, but it quickly became apparent that these were not airplanes. There was no sound, and the burning glow these things generated bore no resemblance to airplane lights.

The sight was so unusual that I pulled over to the shoulder and got out of the car to watch. These objects looked like a series of large orange streetlights moving across the sky, and there was a fire-like quality to them. As each moved overhead, it would suddenly get smaller, shrink to pin-point size and vanish completely.

This was the most unusual (and unnatural) thing Iíve ever seen, and somewhat unsettling. It probably took the better part of two minutes for them all to pass overhead and disappear. This was very real, and it will be on my mind for a while.
