Shape: Light
Duration:20 seconds
2 bright white lights with comet like curved fan shaped tails streaming behind, stationary in east sky over ocean,45 degrees above horizon,disappeared completely after small cloud passed in front

On the night of March 7 1998 in the city of Lighthouse Point Florida at approximatly 6:45 p.m. my nephew and I witnessed 2 bright white small points of light with large elliptcal cometlike tails emitting behind. The light on the left was slightly lower than the one on the right. There was no sound from the objects and they appeared stationary 45 degrees above the horizon. We had seen dozens of small aircraft and large jets before and after this sighting and could hear their engines as well as see the red and green wing lights, the strobes, and the landing headlights. The two objects I am writing about had no colored lights, no flashing strobes, and made no sound. I definitly felt they were nothing I'd ever seen in my 38 years on this earth. A small fast moving cloud ( moving from south to north ) passed in between the objects and us ( no more than 5 seconds ) and when it passed the 2 objects had completely disappeared with no trace. This whole episode lasted between 20 and 30 seconds. I am 38 and live in West Chester Ohio and was vacationing in South Floria the whole week. I have been traveling to South Florida for 20 years and have never seen anything like this before. I am an avid skywatcher and work in the IS department of a major health informaton storage company. My nephew is a 16 year old with a good head on his shoulders. I am dying to know what so many people saw that Saturday night and I'll never forget what I saw!
