Two square/rectangular red crafts spotted above St. Louis on July 4th.

On July 4th, 2009, myself and four other family members and friends were on our front porch watching fireworks coming from the next suburb East of us, approximately two or three miles away. In the middle of the show, a bit past 21:15 we noticed a red, almost square shape high in the Northern sky above St. Louis county, a somewhat higher altitude than airplanes that arrive into Lambert Airport, it continued to rise at a very quick pace faster than regular aircraft; a minute later in the direction of the fireworks display, the same size red square shaped craft rose from the tree-line straight up at an unbelievable fast pace and then angled towards the other red square now hovering high in the sky. All of us on the porch witnessed it, at first a couple people thought the second one was a hot air balloon but within seconds of it rapidly rising faster into the atmosphere than even airplanes do that theory was discounted; it was clear it was not any type of balloon or regular aircraft, we lost visual contact of both crafts in the clouds as it had rained about 10 minutes prior. Both were identical, almost square, and possibly slightly rectangular, with a very small light at one corner. Visual contact lasted about two minutes in duration.
