5/23/08 circular orange fire ball object went from 1 to 2 objects and droped embers

Hello, My name is Sondra...I have lived in Simi Valley for 17 years. I am writing to ask, did anyone report or comment on, seeing anything unusual, in the sky, Friday night (5/23), around 11:00pm? My husband and I witnessed a bright orange circular object, at first hovering then traveling toward us, from the south skies over Simi. While watching we both noticed the object released a smaller light (maybe ambers) that dropped toward the earth, into the hills to the South of Simi. Of course it could have been further away. Then the object came toward us, closer, becoming larger the closer it got. When it seemed to be over LA Ave, it suddenly turned West and picked up speed. It did not pulse, it did not change color but it did become what looked like two round lights. I thought it might be a fireball, or comet but my husband said it looked like two perfectly round lights, like headlights of a car, only in the sky and orange. We have a pair of very strong binoculars and could see this object close up. All we could see were the lights. Two of them staying proportionally together during the entire event. My question is, did anyone else, that you know of, report seeing this? This event lasted 10-15 minutes. Surely someone else had to of seen this!
