the lights formed a plane and a haze appear after the lights changed from white to yellowish orange

at first it looked like a single star...then there were three points of light...two of which then appeared to be moving together as if the lights at the tip of each wing of an aircraft..banking very sharply nearly 45 degrees or more...the two light grew farther apart..and then as if engines fired they turned yellowish orange and appeared to be moving away from my location...northeast moving and growing fainter as the lights grew faint.... oh...when the white lights turned yellowish orange...a puff of smoke appear hazy around both lights and lingered for several minutes..

((NUFORC Note: We assume that the witness describes above the launch of a Titan IV missile out of Cape Canaveral, which occurred at 20:55 hrs. (Eastern) on this date. The missile apparently was launched to the northeast, so it was visible along the eastern shoreline of the U. S.. PD))
