12 bright orange spheres moving slowly over the ocean in Santa Barbara, CA.My wife and I watched approximately 12 very bright orange spheres move slowly across the southern sky above the ocean in Montecito (Santa Barbara), CA. We live approximately 1/2 mile from the ocean so it was impossible to tell if they were close to shore or farther out to sea. Some moved horizontally while others moved diagonally upwards. I was easily able to observe all of the spheres with my binoculars as they were moving slowly with no herky jerky movements. In each case they simply vanished in the sky. There were no clouds or fog to obstruct my view.My father was a mathematician/physicist at the Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) in Pasadena, CA., so I grew up with a great telescope looking up at the sky.
