I was parking my car when I saw 3 orange/red lights traveling slowly across the downtown Detroit skyline, thought they were a type of star, sometimes flickering. plane flight paths are usually more to the northwest of our high rise apt. blgs. I noticed one sitting near a star, but it was much too bright and reddish orange in color (like a flame). i was parking my car and suddenly stopped to get out. This light then was followed by 2 more similar lights traveling at the same slow speed as a plane would be but about the same distance apart. The first 2 objects passed over me out of sight then the 3rd flickered out and it was a clear night. They were traveling in westerly direction away from Canada and the Detroit River. As soon as I watched the 3rd flicker out and extinguish, I then looked back to the direction where they came from and there were 4 more like out of no where, I also watched them until they passed over head and became obscured by the other apt. blg. that is adjacent to mine. A helicopter then appeared to the west of me shining a light in search of someone, but it was flying much lower than the other 7 objects had been. The other objects could have been mistaken for a glowing red star if they weren't moving and they were other diffuse colors or lights around them, but it was indistinguishable to my eyes. I know what the average commercial air carrier looks like in the flight paths near my home.
#5) I am always curious when I see UFOs and will stop to investigate if I have time, often looking at the sky when Im driving. Also, I periodically see UFOs (strange lights moving) when I look out of my apt window and I also see many planes.
