I knew right then it was not a plane or helicopter...
Reno, Nevada - 08-06-15
I was at home and I stepped outside to have a cigarette. It's a clear night; stars are shining and the moon isn't bright out.
I always look up at the sky and stare at the stars.
As I'm looking to the west in the sky, a light appeared out of nowhere. I knew right then it was not a plane or helicopter.
There was no sound at all, and it couldn't have been more than a mile above me.
As it hovered the light got brighter and brighter, then shot off to the northwest. It took about 3 seconds for the light to get brighter.
As soon as it took off the light turned off and didn't stay on. I would've liked to have watched it for a bit longer.
I've seen up to five red orbs only about 150' foot above a field once before and it went on for about 30 minutes.
My family and I watched as they darted around the field. Hovering and stopping then they joined as one red orb and shot up to the sky. Ever since then I'm always watching the sky.
I look forward to when I'll see something strange again.
