Description: My husband and I were star gazing in the evening from our beach front hotel room near the mid-point of the hotel zone. We noticed a soft orange glow heading directly north over the coastline. The object appeared to be between 1500 and 2000 feet above us. The extremely dim orange light appeared to be in the center of an object that had a faint shape which neither of us had seen before. It was suggestive of a dragon fly, but more mechanical looking, like a windmill, or something with solar panels. The object made no sound at all, had no blinking aircraft lights, and passed over our section of the beach in about five seconds. About ten minutes later, we saw an identical object at the same speed passing along the same course.

Two nights later (June 17, about 9:00 PM) we were sitting down on the beach, just north of our building, and we saw an identical object in the same flight path, but this time we were able to visually track it farther. The object headed north, and then made a smooth, 45 degree turn to the northeast, apparently following the coastline of the peninsula.

We are avid sky watchers and astronomy hobbyists and spend a lot of time looking at the night sky. In our hundreds of hours of sky watching, we have never seen this sort of object.
