Location: Ventura, CA
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 5-8 seconds
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
2 "cotton balls" of light on same course moving quickly East to West

I observed 2 balls of light, like a lightly illuminated cotton ball, moving very rapidly east to west in a mostly straight line with a slight course change, it was remarkable how the objects imitated one another during the course change as it did seem through paralax that the objects were indeed separate and not a reflection or refraction of one another.

I was looking South/Southwest when I observed the objects moving from the East passing just under the main body of the constellation "Aquila" and passing through the constellations tail section.

No noise was heard. No paranormal or abnormal phenomenom was/were associatated with the event. The light emitted was nothing spectacular, no colors, no dimming, a very pale white light. Apparently, the objects were about the size of a dime at arms length(1/2-1 degree).

Distance and actual size of the object is very difficult to determine as object had no discernable features, however my best guess as to distance would be from 500' to maybe 2 miles tops. This event was immediately recorded with time, date, direction, and location being absolute. I've been an amateur astronomer for five years, and have never seen anything quite like that!
