Weather Conditions: Crystal clear night
Description: We had just arrived home in Pyes Pa at 9.10pm, got out of the car and then we saw them flying across the sky. They looked spectacular. Very cool!!
They came from Rotorua direction then turned left on arc to go over Kaimai ranges. They were very visible. No noise, following each other about 2 minutes apart. The three lights followed exactly same flight route. They looked the same size. Got a picture of one on cell phone - they were orange in colour but on the cell phone they are white.
For years we have watched the space station, and various other objects in sky. We have seen the chinese lanterns - these objects were in no way like any of these things. They were certainly not a plane, helicopter etc. No flashing lights - just flying orange orbs.
Update: June 3rd 2014
Here are the images very hastily taken on my husband's cell phone. They are not good quality and do not represent the dramatic visual display we witnessed. It was weird that the flying objects looked orange/red but in the pics they have come out white.
