Two brightly glowing objects sighted about 100 degees during twilight at about 40-50 degrees above the horizon.

Two brightly glowing, disk-shaped objects sighted 3-7-98 at approx- imately 1855 EST. Objects were at about 100 degrees magnetic and 60 degrees elevation above horizon. Relationship to each other was line- abreast formation, and movement was extremely slow, and toward East. Unable to tell altitude due to bright glowing aura about them. After 3-4 minutes object on right started to fade rapidly until it disappeared about 15 seconds later. Object on left of formation also faded similarly, but a minute or so after first. Individual objects were very similar in shape to those captured on video tape over Phoenix, AZ in 1997.
