Brookfield resident Jeff Nuttal sent in photos to SunLive of an object he and his wife saw from their Brookfield home last night.
His wife saw a red/orange ball appear out of the clear dark sky about 8.30pm.

“We went outside and watched it move slowly through the sky on a North to east direction,” says Jeff today.
“I went inside and grabbed my phone to video it. When the ball was half way across the sky a second orange/red ball appeared in the same spot as the first and travelled the same course keeping a measured distance apart.”
The first one pulled away and disappeared and the second did the same thing. At first we thought they were small meteors dipping into the atmosphere and then out again, following each other.
We went inside and looked at the video. It was what I expected from footage taken at night on an iPhone but you could see the second object’s colours.
“When I zoomed in I was blown away with what I saw.”
