I was standing outside my apartment talking with the neighbor. We looked up at the sky around 23:45 and noticed it coming from the Southwest. It first looked reddish and then became orange. At first I thought it could be the shuttle or space station. The object appeared spherical and it moved from Southwest to the Northeast. When it was approximately 45 degrees from what we thought was a star, the star shot east and south away from the larger orange sphere. The larger orange sphere continued moving to the Northeast until it disappeared over the horizon. The second object stayed in the sky pulsing different colors and sometime a dimmer sphere would appear next to it and then disappear. I was amazed to witness this encounter. The next couple of nights it was raining and cloudy so we could not view the sky. Then both my neighbor and myself were outside the next couple of nights when the sky was clear at same time and did not see the objects again.
