Driving home after daughters birthday, noticed light ascending from over top of mountain range. Stopped to watch, for it emitted great light.

Driving west bound away from mountains, but at an angle where mountains were seen from car.I had just dropped my daughter off at her Mother's house. Went to turn onto road, noticed bright light and thought a car had come around my side from blind spot. Slowed the vehicle and stopped only to realize that the lights were coming from over the hill. There were two of them and judging by the shape of the hills, these objects were fairly far apart, because they both sat over two seperate hilltops. They seemed to travel in an upward motion, building speed as they went. One broke away from its' original coarse only to return to its' original position in a split second. Both objects ran upward only to come back down right above the hilltop. they did this a few times before they went back down behind the hills. They changed colors as they went higher into the sky only to be more defining in shape. when close to the hilltop, the objects seemed more orange and yellow and where shaped like an ice cream cone, but as they got higher the color changed to a more blue and the shape was definitely oval and pulsed as it moved. My nephew thought it might be a military exercise, because we have a air force base right out of town, but I told him I did not think so, the military doesn't ever fly over housing areas, there were houses up on the hill, then we both were also confused because of the speed the objects were moving, then just coming to a dead stop after moving so fast so quickly> They seemed to be defying normal gravity. I looked in the newspaper to see if any training was going on and nothing was found. I did see an articled in the paper about two weeks later , with reports of strange lights and sounds coming from the hilltop area with lots of people reporting similar things that I saw.
