Ball of light moving to the east slow and silent around 2 miles high.

My husband and I were out back looking at the sky, because it was such a clear beautiful night. My husband pointed out a satellite in the sky and just then I said oh my gosh look right above your head, when we looked up we saw a ball of bright light, lighter than anything we have ever seen in the sky.

I had the camera outside since my last sighting and I took pictures as it moved away from us to the east. It was probably around 2 miles up and it moved very slow and silent. I snapped 6 or 7 pictures which I am sending as well.

They did not turn out clear and look like lines in the sky. We used 800 speed film, no flash, on a Canon Rebel SLR 35 MM Camera. In picture one, if you blow it up you can actually see two separate lights and almost a shape, on picture two you can see a dark triangle shape. The light was very bright but did not give out light. It is very strange to explain.

We are both believe in life on other planets as we have had sightings in the past. I believe we know the difference between satellites, stars, planes, helicopters, and unknown objects. We work full time, have no kids, and lead a very normal life.

I reported a different sighting on April 16th so this is not my first time reporting. If someone wants to call us regarding this they are welcome too, but if you feel there is no need then it's ok too.
