Bright moving stars/objects over central Florida on 8/26/2003 about 9:03pm

On Tuesday August 26, 2003 aorund 9:00pm, in N.W. Orlando, Florida. I was standing outside of my garage at my apartment complex. After working on my motorcycle I went to the front of the building and was standing by my people mover (my car), took a deep breath and gazed off into the distant sky viewing the stars above. I was looking to the north at two stars, one a little brighter then the other. I noticed that the brighter star seemed to be moving/dropping below and to the left of the dimmer star; the brighter star was as still as the dimmer one before it started moving. I thought my head was spinning so I looked down and looked back to see if it was me. It was not, the moving star/object continued to move downward, then the star/object got very bright, a very bright white with a hint of blue, it became brighter then any other star in the sky. The star/object moved towards the north and faded out of sight, not at an extremly fast rate but at a faster rate then any airplane I have ever seen, and it was at a very high altitude. I had to stop and ask myself, what did I just witness. I started laughing and told myself, no that was the after burner of a military jet, then I looked towards the NE and saw a second very bright star, and the same event happen but this one seemed closer to the horizon and closer towards me. It became brighter then the first one, again a very bright white, it moved off towards the NE. I am very sure that what I saw was not a military jet. What I saw moved unlike any plane I have ever seen and I have seen most if not all of them as my father was in the AirForce for twenty five years and so we always saw the jets in action. I really hope that someone else had witnessed the same event that I had. I am a 44 year old male stable and sober, self employed father of three, just moved to the Orlando, FLorida area. If anyone had seen the same events as I witnessed, please e-mail me at ((e-address deleted))
