2 parallel sets of Circular "chasing" style lights hovering, then landing near Park Street in Pinellas County, Florida

03/26/2007 St Petersburg, FL, Approx: 11:40 pm While sitting in our backyard, facing east towards Park Street in St Petersburg, my husband noticed 3 bright chasing style lights shooting rapidly from side to side and then hovering over what would seem to be Park Street and 63rd Avenue in St Petersburg. As the object got closer, we noticed 2 sets of these lights, one right on top of the other (kind of like the chaser lights you would use at Christmas time, only larger). It probably sat in the sky for about 15 seconds, and then started to descend straight down. There seemed to be an aura coming from underneath the object, but it wasn’t very bright. There were no sounds coming from the craft at all. Shortly after it disappeared behind the trees, (maybe 10 minutes or so later) we both noticed a small airplane flying through the same area and then seconds after that, 2-3 helicopters, possibly from the National Coast Guard (they were red & white), were flying around the same area. We also noticed that no commercial flights flew into Tampa International Airport for at least 45 minutes to an hour after we saw the object.
