Early in the morning i observed orbs quietly flying east, they were in groups of two and three, flying quite close to each other. they made no sound and had no lights that airplanes usually have on the wing tips. i thought at first only three but they continued to appear flying east, there was twenty one in all. i called my wife to verify what i saw, she pointed out one that stopped flying and let two others pass then it continued on with them. they were easy to see because of the bright whiteness of them, at first i thought because of the rising sun but they were flying into the soon to be rising sun. it was still dark at the time. they were so quiet that if i had not being looking up i would never have seen them. i have seen bright white lights previous to this, they zig-zagged then just disappeared. there was an item on the news when i saw these lights. we didn't think to video what we saw this morning.
