Two golden-yellow orbs seen from Oro Valley, Arizona to the west-southwest on the evening of April 14th, 2008.

My best friend (17) and I (19) turned left (west) onto Strada Patania Street from 1st Avenue in Oro Valley, Arizona (suburb of Tucson) and just under Orion’s Belt were two golden-yellow orbs about 5 times as wide as a typical star from ground’s view. The orbs were completely motionless, but were gone in the matter of a few seconds. I stared at them in confusion for about 2-3 seconds and out of no where, the orb on my right disappeared and immediately after that, the left orb disappeared into nothingness. We both looked at each other in disbelief and excitement and before I knew it, goose bumps covered my body. By the way, neither of us drink nor do drugs (a question our parents asked us after we ran inside and told them what had just happened). I kept driving to the end of the road so we could possibly get a better look and when we reached a clearing, there was nothing. The two orbs were in the west-southwestern part of the sky and appeared to be over the town of Marana, Arizona, but could’ve been further to the west.
