Description: I saw the same lights on Feb 15 around 9 PM going silently from North to South over St-Augustine Beach. It could be something carried by the wind, but it seemed to travel faster than the wind speed that we had on the ground. Maybe the wind was faster at higher altitude? I took a few pictures, but because of the light and dark background they just look like orange spots in the sky.

Orange Lights Over St. Augustine Florida
Date: November 11, 2011
Brian, did you ever get any resolution on the orange lights?
This past Friday, 11/11/11, my wife and I were camping down in St.Augustine. It was pretty clear, but there was only a small strip of sky that was visible to me. I was outside the camper and had just finished grilling when I noticed an orange light that I thought was a low flying plane.
I thought it was odd because I have never seen a color like that on any plane (I’m in the navy currently and am up to date on military aircraft). Anyway, I noticed that there were several “planes” in single file behind the leader (perhaps 6 or 7). My wife also witnessed the same thing.
The very strange part was that once they reached a certain point, they seemed to pull a quick vertical climb and quickly dim out of sight. I thought at first they were passing through a cloud, but over the next few minutes I realized that wasn’t the case.
Anyway, was just wondering if you had any further details.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
