Lake Leelanau, MI

July 2, 2012  10:20
I was seated at the stern of our pleasure boat at approximately 10:20PM, on the evening of July 2, 2012  Om a nearby town across the lake, fireworks were scheduled to begin in about 25 minutes.  The sky was partly cloudy; and the full moon was beginning to rise.  There were many watercraft in the lake as well as many spectators watching from their homes or the beach.  My husband became excited and told me to look down the south end of the lake.  I observed a small, reddish orange light floating above the lake.  I would guess that it was about 1000 feet up in the sky, but I do struggle with measuring distances.  I did not have my glasses on at the time.  I watched as another followed the first.  I cocked my ear upwards attempting to hear a motor noise and heard absolutely nothing.  All in all, there were at least 12 of these small objects that I observed.
