Two balls of light moving fast West to East in Salem, Oregon.

My two friends and I were in our backyard on the patio around 7:30 PM. It was pretty much daylight. We were chatting when I noticed what I can only describe as a ball of light traveling West to East (I was facing South). The object did not have a clearly defined outline--no hard edges. It was a bright luminous mass and while I would describe it as round in shape it did not appear perfectly round or disc-like. It was moving quickly, was completely silent and moved in a straight line. We tracked the object as it moved in and out of sight behind trees. It was not high in the sky. Just about the time we lost sight of the object, another one appeared. It looked like the other one and moved along the same path. Again, we tracked it until it moved out of view. It was not shaped like a plane and none of us had ever seen anything similar moving in the way these objects did. One might describe this as having the characteristics of a comet. It gave the impression of a gaseous ball of light, in that it did not appear solid exactly. And while you could not see through the object, it had a translucent character. It had soft edges and a glow or aura. Shortly after this event we did see several planes in the sky, which only reinforced how very unique the previous objects were.
