Orange lights flying north to south dropping something and disappearing.A group of three bright orange flying/hovering objects was observed above treeline heading in a southern direction from my house. The objects would travel past my house from the north and then disappear in the south. Two members of my group noticed something falling from the craft at several points in their flight. One of the craft appeared to disintegrate after dropping something to the ground. The lights were erratic in flight and seemed to fade and then brighten.One of the members of my group ( a 42 y/o housepainter) was actually in a different location in town but went outside to view the orange objects when I called him. At his location the objects were also visible and were seen by a large group of people.My viewing group was a 5 year old boy, 8 year old boy, myself- 37 year old middle class woman with a college education, and a man in his 50's in the construction industry.
