2009-11-22 2009-11-21 stream of orange glowing spheres traveling south/southwest, low altitude, silent. Probably between 100 to 200 spheres
Probably between 100 to 200 spheres I was sitting outside in my yard. I turned to look behind me and saw around 6 glowing orange sphere shaped objects traveling in the sky south to southwest toward me. I immediately called my sister across the street telling her to get outside quickly. I went into the street to get a clearer view. There still appeared to be 6 or so of them. When my sister got outside, I was in the process of calling my son to come outside also. It appeared that the 6 were about to pass by before I could get others outside to view them. Then, I saw more coming in the distance from the same direction as the first few. My son and sister came out and witnessed them flying over as well. It became a steady stream of these. I called my mother who lives next to me to come out. She came out and witnessed them. I called the police to ask if anyone could tell me what these things were. The dispatcher said "No, but I have an officer enroute". The officer arrived and told me he was watching this stream of objects from another area of our city and could see them miles away. He couldn't tell what they were either. We called the local airport and were told they had nothing on these things. As we watched them coming toward us, they were bright orange. As they started to pass over and move away from us, the light would dim until it went out like the light may have been on one side and as it moved past there was no light on the back. I spotlighted them, and got no reaction from them. But, the spotlight still didn't show what the thing was other than the orange glowing light. We watched the stream until the last one came over and disappeared. We still don't have any idea what they were. No one had a camera that could pick them up. It was a crystal clear sky at the time.
2009-11-22 2009-11-21 Approx. 100-200 orange glowing spheres moving NE to SW over Lufkin, TX.
My sister called me to come outside quickly to see the objects in the sky. By the urgency in her voice I knew something was not "normal". I had difficulty finding my keys to open my deadbolt lock and accidentally set off my alarm system. The alarm company called and asked if I was okay and I told them yes but I still needed a police officer because of what I was seeing in the sky. There were approx. 20 orange glowing objects moving from NE to SW over the area. They seemed to come in "waves" and we saw about 5-6 waves of them. A police officer arrived and stated he had seen them farther away and he stayed and watched several of the objects fly over with us. None of the people who were watching had any idea of what they were. We watched the objects for approx. 15-20 minutes before they completely left the area. Although the temperature was in the low 50's to mid 40's and I wasn't wearing a coat, I did not feel the cold. I was awestuck at the site. I could not take my eyes off of the objects. Even this morning, I can't get the images out of my mind.

I'm always looking at the sky at night and in the morning, however I never saw anything really weird until last week
For about 20-30 seconds i watched a single red orb fly North to South directly over my house. It was about the same luminosity/color as an infrared mouse light if that makes sense aka BRIGHT RED. It didn't flash and there were no other lights on it. It didn't waver at all...it was on a dead straight course.
I couldn't tell how high it was. In the sky it was about twice the size of a normal star...but if it was as high as most commercial planes when it went overhead, it was moving at least 10 times as fast. But for some reason i got the impression that it was rather low...maybe 2000 feet. It made absolutely no noise.
I'm used to seeing things flying around, I see planes and helicopters all of the time. It was dark out but it didn't look like any other form was there besides the red orb. I can almost always see an outline of a plane/helicopter even if it's dark outside.
So, i'm stumped. Was hoping some other Austinites might have caught a glimpse. It was last wednesday at around 7pm
