Shape: Light
Duration:2 mins
At 9:40 p.m. on August 20 2007 I witnessed two bright spherical lights/objects for about two minutes.

At first, there was only one. I couldn't make out the shape. It wasn't traveling very fast. Then, a second one literally appeared behind the first and at a distance of about one mile. I tracked both visually and with binoculars.

As I watched the first one, and at the end of about two miniutes, it turned a dirty burnt orange hue, accelerated and then disappeared. A few seconds later, the second object did the same thing. Both objects left at the same point in the night sky.

There was absolutely no mistaking these objects for any known aircraft. There was no sound of any kind. The objects were traveling from west to east at an unknown altitude.

I have seen such objects in my area twice before over the past few months - slowing moving bright spheres that turn a different hue and then just disappear.

There is a nuclear power plant in my area. These two lights/objects originally came from that direction (to the northwest of my home.)
