Janesville, WI (United States)

Shape: orange ball/sphere with a lighter ball/sphere on the inside | Duration: at least 5 minutes from the time I noticed it

I was closing a front window curtain about 9:00 p.m. and I immediately noticed a bright orange flickering light in the sky (towards the south) The reason it caught my eye was because I knew there was a full moon out- and this orange light was WAY too small to be the moon. Checking it out a bit longer- I noticed a smaller white light on the lower portion of the circle- and the white light looked like it was "inside" of the orange light. It was moving very slowly. I ran and grabbed my camera because I knew it was not a plane. When I got outside I could see it much clearer. It was quite orange in color and it kind of reminded me of a round oriental lamp with a candle lit inside. The orange sphere seemed to slightly waver a bit- as it was glowing. It kept moving silently and slowly southward and then slowly faded out of sight. What happened right AFTERWARDS is what really freaked me out. Smaller white lights were high up in the trees above me, and one was triangular and green. They seemed to be getting closer to me- then I just ran in the house. I NEVER experienced anything like this before.
