Location: Lakehills, TX
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 5 minutes
Orange spheres appear near Medina Lake blinking on and off for several minutes.

Orange sphere bigger than your regular star appears in the night sky for a few seconds and then blinks off. We were facing south looking towards Medina Lake. The lake is visible from my house and is about two miles away. Lakehills, Texas is about 40 miles northwest of San Antonio. The orange ball then reappears a bit further from original appearance but not by much then blinks off again. Then another appears further to the west and also blinks off. Then one blinks on and two more blink on next to it. Another blinks on a short distance away from it. Then one by one they blink off. At one point about six or seven were blinking on and off. All of them were the same color which was orange. There was no sound, no moving any direction either sideways or up or down. There were no flares and they were not fireballs, aircraft, flares or drones. Though they appeared in different parts of the sky they were all aligned at same altitude. They were not very hi! gh and best guess is probably no more than 2500 feet and could have been less. They were round like a basketball and they glowed on and then off. After about 5 minutes or so the show was over. They reminded me of the Phoenix lights. There was some moonlight and a few clouds. They did not appear behind clouds and we could not discern if they were connected together. I believe they were separate because at one point one or two would appear above each other. Tried to take a photo but they would blink off too quickly. Fascinating little show to say the least. Though this is my personal opinion it seemed to me that they knew we were observing them and thus the display. Who knows?
