Duration:~15 minutes
2 Orange Rocket like plumes in sky silent & still for 15 minutes.

The weather was light overcast with spotty clouds. The 2 UFO's I saw were due west and the 1st was approximately 45 degrees straight up from the crescent moon on my horizon about to set. It was orange and vertically oriented looking like the plume of a rocket, but was perfectly still. Its apparent size if holding at arms length was 1.25" high by .25" thick in the middle symmetrically tapering off upward & downward to a point (like a classic saucer oriented vertically but not metallic, it was rocket exhaust like) Within 3 or 4 minutes of seeing the 1st one another slowly faded in above and to the right of the 1st object. It looked exactly the same but not quite as bright. About 2 or 3 minutes later the 2nd object slowly faded out, then about 5 minutes later the original object slowly faded out as well. The whole time both objects were silent and still in the sky and still in respect to each other. I tried taking photo's with my cell phone but they didn't come out.

I have lived on the same property all my life and have never witnessed anything like that before.
