Two bright orange orbs in Northwest Denver synchronized, traveling northeasterly above tree line, then disappeared.

On Saturday, August 2, 2014 at approximately 2245 mountain time, I was standing on the sidewalk in Northwest Denver, in the vicinity of 38th Avenue and Yates Street when I saw two bright orange objects traveling northeasterly in the dark night sky. They were well above tree line and houses, and were coming from the southwest traveling in a perfectly straight line at a stable elevation, coming from the Sheridan Avenue area in the Edgewater vicinity.

Two of us saw them. They were traveling quietly and perfectly synchronized together. After between 30 and 60 seconds both bright orange glowing orbs kind of flashed brighter one time, then immediately disappeared, both at exactly the same time. They did not appear to drop in elevation at all, they just disappeared. They disappeared when they were probably over Yates and 41st Avenue area or a little farther northeast.

I would guess the two orbs, or what ever they were, were traveling about as high as a helicopter flies around Denver, maybe a little lower. Very bright orange, almost red glowing, appearing to be round / oval in shape. Pretty good size; smaller than the body of a helicopter but maybe about six or seven feet in diameter, about the size of a hot tub. It was hard to really ascertain the size or the distance they were from us in the dark night sky and with the bright orange glow they emitted.

The Denver skies were partly cloudy, but the area these were in was in a completely clear sky. They were moving at a good clip, completely quiet though and perfectly synchronized together.

They were probably visible by us for a total of 30 to 60 seconds. Two of them, perfectly spaced apart and traveling side by side, but not connected to each other.

We have both seen Chinese type lanterns in the night sky, but these were NOT lanterns. These were two bright orange objects, separated by space but traveling perfectly together. They appeared together and disappeared at exactly the same time.
