Shape: Sphere
Duration:1 MINUITE
Two large gold low flying sphere's move slowly, silently, across the horizon.

About 9:50 P.M. 08/09/00 myself and two friends observed two sphere shaped lights, moving slowly away and to the right of our position. The lights were the color of fire, very bright, and appeared to be quite large. They looked very similar to military flares, however, they maintained their altitude, and were moving in a horizontal motion, going out of sight behind a distant treeline. Our location was on a hill, 20 to 30 miles from Ft. Cambell Army Base. The lights were low on the horizon, very close together, with one slightly higher and to the rear of the leading one. No sound was heard. The distance, we estimated at two to three miles, the altitude, around 2500 ft. The lights were large enough to be very obvious should anyone in the area happened to have looked up. They were the first thing I noticed, when we walked outside. My friends and I are middleaged management/professionals with no desire for notoriety. This was the second sighting for each of us, of something seen in the sky that we could'nt fully explain. Please understand our wish to remain anonymous.
