Vivid Orange Lites In the West

On this evening,to the west of my home,I witnessed two extremely bright tangerine orange lites in the western sky,at first,they were above the tops of very large old pine trees,but slowly moved around the area and descended below tree tops.I watched as they moved slowly around,went in house and got my binoculars,they appeared to have a boomrang shape thru them.As,I had seen the very same lights two yrs. ago in summer,decided to get car keys and get on highway for a better view.While going to car,I observed them the whole time,got to car,and they dissappeared in an instant.Feeling unsettled,decided not to proceed on a dark road alone at nite.Spoke to several neighbors who had seen nothing,but did notice alot of dogs in area started to bark as this occured.Funny,thing is--several years back,a 80yr.old neighbor lady called me at midnight one evening because she thought my neighbor's barn was on fire and asked me to check it out,said it was all orange in the sky over his house,my husband and I checked and there was nothing.We don't know what she saw,but now I often wonder if it wasn't these bright orange lights!Wish I knew if others in my neighbor hood have ever seen these lights.
