Duration: 30-45 seconds
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
One white light in the north and 10 minutes later an orange teardrop shaped light that was followed by two jets patroling the night sky

I was out taking a walk with my boyfriend just enjoying the beautiful night and I happened to see what I thought was a satellite in the sky, so I was trying to show my boyfriend what I was talking about when all of a sudden (left of where we were looking) there was a bright white light that was brighter than anything else around in the sky. We could tell the light was moving and that it was moving away and fast.

Almost just as soon as we had seen this bright white light it dimmed to nothing in the distant horizon. As if that wasnít weird enough, about 10-15 minutes later I was by myself and I saw an orange teardrop shaped light in the sky (south of the white light.)

I stood there and looked at it for about 1 minute or so and then it just went out as if it hadnít moved or went away, but it just dimmed out.

5 seconds (or less) passed and there were 2 fast planes/jets that cruised the sky kind of close to one another side by side which made me wonder if they were U.S. military.
