I was a passenger on a flight out of chicago o'hare airport. it was a cloudy night and as the plane ascended above the clouds i noticed 9 or 10 amber colored orbs off to the east. one of them was just above the clouds and illuminating the cloud tops. there were no flashing lights and the orbs didn't seem to be moving. it's difficult to say how far away they were but i would guess over a mile. i snapped a picture and continued to watch them until they went out of view.
