My friend was visiting from another city. We were sitting in the hot tub at approximately 1am Eastern Time. To the south-east I noticed a fast moving orange light travelling from South to the North. I said to my friend "Hey look at that" and pointed. He saw it as well. The object was in a group of 3, followed by a group of at approximately 10 more behind it. The first object in the group of 3 may have been slightly brighter than the others as it was what drew my attention to them. Upon seeing the first group of objects (3) it crossed my mind that they were meteors, but upon seeing the second group and the structured movement it appeared to be something else occurring. The objects were relatively low, much lower than jet aircraft typically fly, completely silent and extremely fast. They didn't leave a trail, were yellow-orange in colour and their shape wasn't apparent. My feeling/impression of the event was that of surprise. It was unlike anything I've seen before. We lost sight of the objects when our view was obscured by my house.
