I had gone out to the front yard right after dark to set off some fireworks with the kids while my wife watched from the upstairs window. We were cleaning up when I asked my son to come over and check out a light hovering over house tops to the east. It was extremely bright and orange, and appeared to me that light made star like spines. No sound. Perfectly stable, it then rose, leveled off, and headed to the west. At this point I called for my daughter and told my son to get my wife and the camera. There is some spotty camera documentation. We all witnessed it pass our house, than instantly turn to the north and speed out of sight. We were able to view through binoculars as well. We went inside and not five minutes later Taylor called that it was back. We all ran back out and witnessed two more with similar flight plans to the first. These were not airplanes, fireworks,flares,helicopters, etc. Very few explanations. My whole family saw it. I was amazed when I googled it and how many people saw the same orange orbs on the same day. My folks live across the street, so the family shared the experience with them on Wednesday. My kids were spending the night over at their house tonight. I got a frenzied call to come over they were watching another sighting in the same general location. My parents house sits up much higher, so they were watching from the upper bonus room window. My mom swears to what she saw with the kids (9&12). It was a bright white, large saucer that hovered over power lines to the east, moving as it hovered, then sped away.
