Duration:5-10 Seconds
2 ORANGE BALLS OF LIGHT APPEARED IN THE SKY 30 SECS AFTER ONE ANOTHER AND SHOT OFF AS A GREEN STREAK LIGHT

WHAT I WITNESSED: I saw a yellowish-orange colored ball of light suddenly appear and accelerate so quickly it was far beyond the capabilities of all known aircraft. When this ball of light shot of to the west, it appeared and I firmly believe it was traveling level to the ground as though it was completely parallel to the ground. As it accelerated and shot out of sight, the object went from a solid yellowish-orange colored ball of light to a green streak of light that disappeared as quickly as it came. This entire event took no longer than 5-10 seconds.

-Less than 30 seconds later, I was still looking at the point in the sky where I had just witnessed something fantastic and rare when the event was repeated with all details the exact same as described above except this object was less than 100 yards to the north (the right) of the first object.

THE SPECIFICS: -I stepped outside and stood on my friend's porch to smoke and check out the current weather conditions as it had been snowing hard all day. It was still snowing heavily and the clouds had to be at an altitude no higher than 2,000 AGL. I was closely examining the cloud layer in an attempt to predict whether the snow would be letting soon or not. I was of sober mind when I observed these 2 events witnessed this event and was looking west focusing on the fast-moving cloud layers coming out of the west and moving toward the east. It is important to note that the weather conditions were such that the stars were not at all visible, flying conditions were IFR only, and there are neither airports nor victor nor jet airways in this area, neither are there any towers or buildings (only flat farmland) in this area.
