Shape: Light
Duration:30 sec
two lights circling each other in the night time sky then shooting away from each other in new orleans louisiana.

I was about 13 years of age at the time. My uncle was a fisherman and I worked on his boat in the summer as a deckhand. While waiting to leave for the overnight shrimping trip I was looking at the stars when I observed two bright lights circling each other at a high altitude. they looked like stars but were moving at a very high rate of speed. I went to where my uncle was an advised him to look up and pointed to where the lights were and he also observed them of a few seconds circling each other and right after that the two lights shot away from each other in opposite directions at incredible speeds and then they faded away. I have no idea what they were. Stars? Ive never heard of two stars getting caught up togeher like that and then shooting away from each other. Who knows?
