2 UFO's hovering 3 stories up from the ground

I was walking toward my sister’s apartment, which was a corner unit close to the side of the road. Catty corner from where I was standing is, first a 4 to 5 lane road, after which is an entirely different apartment complex that is 2 stories high. It was evening but not 100% dark yet, both apartment lights had automatically come on by this time. I looked across the street at our neighboring apartments to see some lights floating above the building. The lights matched the color of the apartment lights which were orange (that industrial orange you see everywhere). I thought I was seeing things so I covered the apartments from my view with my right hand... I then saw what it was that was floating above the apartments.

I was amazed to see 2 UFO’s they were round, and both had 3 lights shining, the lights were round and placed in a triangle pattern at the bottom of the UFO. They were literally 3 stories from the ground. They hovered around each other, in very close proximity to each other, without making a sound. They did this for what seemed to be 1-2 minutes before accelerating to speeds of, I can’t even make an educated guess at how extremely fast they took off toward the east. They took off almost parallel to the earth (if that makes any since) in other words they didn’t go straight up they left at an angle. Their speed literally went from maybe 1-2 mph to an excess of 200 mph in 1 second. They both left at the exact same time as if they both knew it was time to go. As they left, they made not one sound, they were gone and I haven’t seen them again since, although I wish I would catch another glimpse of them because they do fascinate me. I can only imagine the view from someone in that apartment complex, to have walked outside, looked up and seen 2 UFO’s hovering above them only 3 stories from reach. Amazing!!!!
