First noticed the orange glowing flame trails coming strait towards me from the north. then they all came to a stop at different times. i asked my son to tell me if he could see anything and he said that they were still in the same place. i ran to get the binoculars. when i got them in focus they were the blackest black and saucer like about 7 of them. as i was watching some of them began to shot off to the west and the rest to the east at their current altitude. for as far away as they were, they were massive. 10 minutes later or so my son yelled at me and said there were more to the west. this time we saw the flame reentry from the side view. then the large saucer like ships and then they shot off to the west. i called the local newspaper the next day to see if anyone else had witnessed it besides all of us. the reporter got back to me a few minutes later in a very strange manner and said that he couldn't print anything that the government hasn't approved. i told him i was only asking if anyone else saw anything the night before. he just kept repeating that he couldn't say anything.
