Another sighting in the SAME field that we saw "UFO's", on 09/02/01

We were just shooting off model rockets again the same as on 09/02/01! There was a pretty clear sky with a few clouds. We shot off about 7 model rockets, C-class engines. My little sister (11) then said she saw something. When I looked I saw 3 white dots very far away in the sky. We had seen planes flying over head before this. The white dots seemed to go closer and further apart to each other the same way they did on 09/02/01. Then they disapeared and we saw a red dot in the sky with our naked eyes. Looking through the binoculers we saw that it was an oval, silverish, craft with a red center. All together we saw 4 "UFO's". We shot off another model rocket in hopes to see more "UFO's," but we didn't have any luck so we went home.
