I was in the parking lot of the new YMCA when my 4 year old son pointed out 3 airplanes flying at the same time to the west of us. Since I was already driving our car, I was only able to glance briefly to see what appeared as 2 white lights (obvious airplanes) and a glowing red fire object (not a plane) all flying indepently in different parts of the sky, off to our left. We only live 4 blocks away so I jumped out of the car immediately upon arriving home. I had a small video recorder in my hand since I had just recoreded my sons soccer practice. I immediately saw what appeared to be a giant fire (the size of a cargo plane??) drifting across the sky, but making no sound. The recording I made is pretty bad since I rushed to get it on video before it went behind the trees or behind my house. As I ran across the front yard, I was able to zoom in briefly. The sky was dark. You will see the object dissappear for a few seconds. Look closely, you will see that the view was obstructed by my house. I kept walking towards the side/back yard. You will see the object reappear on the other side of my house, albeit much fainter. So faint, in fact, that the camera has trouble focusing in on it. If you look closely, you will watch it slowly vanish into the sky. It simply dissappeared as if a fire was put out. Their were no clouds that night. This incident took place 2 years almost to the day that I saw a similar object come out of the east (the direction of Philly International airport) and float across the sky, above our house. My son, 2 years old at the time, and wife, all witnessed the event as it took place over about 5 minutes. This object looked like a floating sky fire as well, and made no sound.
