From south facing window, witnessed two aircrafts heading north, low and close together. Each had two very bright headlights and they appeared to be flying one on top of the other. They passed over the house seemingly skimming the trees; it was then apparent that one was flying just behind and above the other. On the left underside of each were bright green letters and/or numbers, large enough to be read. There was a sound like an airplane, but not as loud as a jet that close. These crafts looked man-made, but I've never seen this large of a craft fly so low, slow or close together. I almost grabbed my daughter and ran from the house because they were so low. There was a small airplane flying above and east of the crafts, heading the same direction.
