Sighting Details

Bright orange, glowing objects moving North, steady speed. A group of three that appeared similar to loose military formation. 30 mintues later, 4-6 more object travelling same direction. They appeared to be ascending, but that is difficult to tell not knowing the size, distance, etc. My wife and I were downtown Des Moines and we both saw them. The speed would be consistent to that of jet aircraft departing the airport. There were no familiar indication to that of aircraft. No strobes, position lights, etc. just and intensely bright orange glow. Watching the second set, I thought maybe it was military aircraft departing the airport, the bright orange explained by afterburner, so I stopped the car, and rolled down window and stuck my head out to listen. No sound of aircraft whatsoever. The objects eventually disappeared into the distance.
