dual speedliy rotating/orbiting stars

About 45 minutes ago i opened the back door to light a cigarette and i did and i stepped out and I saw a plane coming from the south. My back door faces south. Its been so cloudy lately so i noticed the stars right away. I noted arcturus and then scanned to the west and noted jupiter. I need to say that i am overwhelmed again suddenly as i write this tears flood and i feel overwhelmed and i promise this is not a joke. as soon as i noted jupiter i look just to the left and up of it because two orangish very distant and even seemed like stars just started to dance and rotate almost orbit each other rapidly i stepped back in the house and said ((wife's name deleted)) but she didnt come out. i looked back and they horizontally and rapidly sped away in opposite direction. i could have sworn they just stopped and turned into stars you now what i mean? did they dissapear just in front of that star? i just didnt know. I have to say that i have experienced anxiety and depression in t! he past and even recently but this type of anxiety and feeling is way new. Just thinking of it and imagining it is making me feel so tense. my eyes get wide and tears just pour out litterally. im not crying though... It was just so amazing. also, i yelled for my wife ((name deleted)) because i think it was end of march when we were both sitting out here and bothed wathed what we believed to be a tea lantern floating slowly up and both said how pretty it was. and then it just stopped. and it floated. and it never burnt out. and i can tell you now 1000 percent honest that it turned into or burnt out perfectly in front of arcturus. so. i stepped out immediately lit cigarette. looked up immediately saw plane traveling normal height blinking lights red and white obvious plane. then notice acrturus pretty uch south above it look west immediately see them next to jupiter going crazy around each other. from me stepping out to watching them spinning around time lapsed about 10- 20 seconds. stepped in ((wife's name deleted)) stepped right out immediately saw them travel opp! osite di rections horizontally. time lapsed now maybe 30 seconds. i stare. nothing. i look south perfect horizontal white non blinking perfect steady moving like a satelite and dissapears. ive seen many satelites. i just wouldnt call it one. arcturus is my favorite star and jupiter my favorite to look at through telescope. i not an alien wacko. END.... sorry so sloppy. just had to type while so fresh in my mind. Thank you for your time.

Sinerely, ((name deleted)).

I live in Springfield Oregon, im a dishwasher in a restaurant. Im married and have a 12 year old daughter. i own my home i dont rent. I love nature and the outdoors. I am passionate about many things such as human rights animal rights and the environment. I grew up in yuma arizona on the border of mexico and had a sighting similar to phoenix light there when a kid but never thought about it again until now. so yea im just a normal guy practicing compassian and tollerance in todays speedy world and raising a little girl so th! at hopefully she just leaves this earth better then she found it as well. i have to work in the morning and im usually in bed by now. This is tough it realy is. I woke my wife up shortly after because i just had to tell her. i just felt crazy absolutely crazy telling her. She believes me though because of what we saw together not that long ago. I ahve to say that after seeing it all and before i woke up katy i just remember thinking my eyes are clear and fine. I wasnt groggy. i didnt get teray from a yawn or brain says no way man but my eyes saw that. what was that? and lastly. the first thing i did was look on youtube and there was a vid posted in texas 20 minutes prior of something similar. i posted a omment. it was a shaky vid though. I dont own a vid cam. i dont use a cell phone. I would take a pollygraph. i just want to know the truth. what the hell did i see tonight??
