2 glowing orange fireballs in the sky

My husband and our 2 children were driving to the store and noticed 2 glowing orange balls hovering over the valley in the distance.They appeared as fireballs in the sky,(ironically enough we were going to the store to rent the movie 'Fire In The Sky').

We decided to drive toward them, as we got closer one of them disappeared altogether.Eventually driving through the valley with all the buildings we lost sight of the remaining object.The object, last we seen, was pretty close to the ground--or so it seemed. However, there was a helicopter that was in the vicinity we thought the object had been in. (and the video store didn't even carry that movie!)

((NUFORC Note: Please see second similar report from Maricopa, AZ, for the same date at 21:45 hrs.. If the events are the same, data could be used to triangulate on the lights, in order to determine their location. PD))
