Two objects
Santa Barbara California, near Cottage Hospital.

It was dark out, and a friend and I were walking down the street. We paused to watch a helicopter leaving from the Cottage hospital heli pad. In the past week or so many different agencies have been making landings, more than normal. I assume they are practice runs for the pilots.

The helicopter passed out of site towards the south. I turned around and looked up (I like to look at the stars) when a very fast completely silent object with one dim white light on the bottom passed over heading west. I got excited and was yelling at my friend to look up. I pointed towards it and it faded into the night.

As I was asking if my friend had seen it, another very fast completely silent object with 2 dim white lights one in the front and one in back passed overhead in the same direction and speed as the other object. I yelled at my friend to look, and again it was gone.

A few moments later I heard the sound of a helicopter coming from the east, It soon came into view. Much more slowly than the other 2 objects it passed overhead in the exact same direction as the two strange objects. Their were many lights on the helicopter just like all the aircraft we see at night.

I had seen a silhouette of the two unidentified objects, but the shape was vague. The two objects were different somehow (one with one light and the other with 2) Yet they were obviously the same. Vandenberg airforce base is a one hour car ride in the same direction the objects were travelling.
