Sighting of two brilliant orbs of light over ocean in Florence Oregon, August 2000

Just found this site as I was surfing the 'net (which was a fluke as I am not into UFO research or sightings as a hobby or anything.) Upon finding this I became curious, so I checked something out...and I was amazed to find a sighting similar to ours (in exact same location!) Therefore, I thought I should report this even though it happened almost four years ago. I didn't know what to with this information at the time but I'm thrilled to have found this site now and think such events should definitely be reported. While vacationing with my mate in Florence Oregon, August of 2000 (can't recall the exact day but I'm sure it was the first week of Aug) from our resort window - which was a perfect unobstructed view - we watched two extremely large, bright orbs hovering over the pacific ocean (very far out, probably thousands of miles, in the middle of the pacific.) They were too high to be ship lights and too active to be stars...they moved up and down, sometimes going quite high, sometimes hovering just above the water. We watched them through high powered binoculars as they shifted left, then right, then up and down. They would come closer and suddenly move a great distant away again at an extremely fast pace (in almost a flash.) I forgot to mention, one was a reddish orb, the other a green one and both approx. same size - although the green one seemed slightly smaller at times (maybe farther away?) Out of the brighter, reddish orb a smaller white glowing orb appeared to come out of it and circle around it, then float beside it for a time, then go back inside. We watched this happen for almost two hours when below on the beach, a man was walking alone and we watched him stop and observe the moving lights. (Maybe he saw them from his window also and went down to get a closer look.) Suddenly both of the massive lights went very high and just as quickly appeared to descend, then vanished - poof! (They appeared to have gone under the water.) We have never seen anything like this before nor sinc! e and are not UFO watchers. Needless to say this was quite unexpected! We assume it was probably some type of Gov. experiment/aircraft. Thanks!
