Location: Redding, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 to 3 minutes
Two bright lights, no sound, thin faint white trails behind then, travelled from west to east.

We were outside sitting in lawn chairs in my drivway drinking a couple of beers and I noticed a bright light moving in the window of my truck. We looked up and at first I thought it was a bright satellite, as bright or brighter than Sirius. It did not change in instensity though and travelled in a east to north east direction. At a couple of points you could see a very thin faint white trail comming from it so I kewn it was not a satellite and was too slow to be a meteor and was not a jet. There was no sound then we noticed another one trailing behind the first that was about half as bright, and it too at one point gave off a light white trail. They both travelled togethere to the east until we could not see them anymore. They were both very bright, brighter than any star, were easily visible, and gave off no sound.
