One night (a few months ago), I was sitting on my back porch and joking around with some of the EC members while posting. Most of you who know me well are aware of the fact that I'm not much of an English Teacher and simply enjoy chatting here while doing my level best to help out when time allows. Writing and being creative is a part time hobby of mine. Yet, this is a true story and I'm composing it in a serious manner.
Anyway,... These strange orange lights appeared on my southern horizon with a northern heading. They were flying high and looked very similar to a passing satellite by the time they flew over Northern California. No sound was heard out of them and they formed a "V" pattern (like flying geese). Several others also followed them in a random and single formation. They were out of the atmosphere and traveling at a high rate of speed.
I know what a satellite looks like in the night sky. These objects were orange. A satellite appears white while viewing it from the ground. There's so many of them floating around our planet. Most of them pass by in a random nature depending upon their orbit and the way the sun reflects upon them. The naked eye can spot them if you look up at the right time in the evening.
Norad and the United States Airforce reported very little on the subject.
I've even seen missles fired in the night sky during military test operations upon occasion. They emit a glowing tail behind them while in flight. All are well documented while being seen for hundreds of miles by everyone. I've witnessed them from my inland location while being fired off the coast by a naval ship while looking westward. I've even seen one in the night sky to my east. It probably was launched from a Nevada testing ground. Trust me, I've observed it all in this state during my 44 years of existence (when I was lucky enough to have my eyes on the night sky). These weren't missles. They simply don't fly in formation like that.
When I saw them, I thought I was crazy and needed to call my daughter outside to confirm what my own eyes were observing. Unfortunately, my own iphone video couldn't capture the moment properly. I'll post two tube videos filmed by someone else at the end of this writing.
My somewhat uneducated guess tells me these flying objects were United States "Black Budget" aircraft out for a military flying excercise. Perhaps the space shuttle was retired for a reason.
If you read this blog addition, give me your guess or opinion on what you think they are. I'd appreciate the comment and honestly have no idea on what was seen. It's a mystery to me. When I was posting that night on EC, my laptop computer was momentarily dropped in amazement.

It was a very clear April night here. By the time I saw them, they'd gained altitude. Luckily, I was outside posting to all of my friends here and witnessed this. Unfortunately, I didn't have the courage to tell this story until now. Still, so many people in my region saw these objects and thank God for the internet.
Take a look at this one as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Df8_
