It appeared over head, as if materializing, I saw no heat trail from entering the atmosphere, just a spot of light.

It first looked like a satellite as it came over the horizon, from the west. It then appeared over head, as if materializing, I saw no heat trail from entering the atmosphere, just a spot of light, and it was moving very fast. At first, and this happened quickly, there was only one, a green tubular shaped light. Then another slightly behind it. The second light stopped or appeared behind the first, then the two slowly circled each other without changing orientation. That is to say they were still pointing east. They slowed to a stop and hovered for a moment side by side. They aligned and moved east, slowly, maybe a hundred or so mph(?). And absolutely no sound. Coming or going. They were shaped like, and looked like, a fluorescent light bulb. They glowed like a black light but were green. To say the least I was very excited. I couldn't tell how big or how high they were, I had nothing to reference from. Clear sky, no clouds no moon. But it was very clear that these were not any type of airplane or aircraft that I have ever seen. And moved like nothing I know of can. It looked like something you would see in a movie! Better, it was real!!
