Two red probe crafts ascended into "mother ship". Mother ship ascended in altitude and release one of the probes and then lost visual.

I know this is an 18 year old report but it still is vivid to me as when it occured. It was a mild spring evening when I was with my friend as she prpared to return home. Looking out her window I was studying the starfield when one of the stars did "not look right". She thought I was pulling her leg so I went on to the back poch to investigate. After observing the object for ten minutes, two probes came out from the tree line on the horizon. The probes were bright glowing red and ascended effortlessly to the main ship. At this time I called the Erie aIRPORT AND spoke with the controller and told him what I was watching as I was watching it. He thanked me and three of us continued to watch this as it occurred. The probes entered the craft and the craft seemed to grow brighter and ascended slightly. A red probe was emitted and then the lights disappeared. whole sighting lasted 25 minutes. Air traffic control did not answer return calls and nothing in local papers after incident. I am recalling the incident from memory but do have documentation on file. I am ex-Navy with all sea duty so in my opinion, the sighting I have described here appears authentic since I have no other reson to believe otherwise. Good hunting!
