Comet shped UFO's video taped over Manitoulin Island (US Canada border).

On January 1st, 2001 between 4:30 and 5:30pm (I believe, I can colloborate with another eyewitnees). Me and my girlfriends Father seen two UFO's over Manitoulin Island. I was facing SW. They appear to be bright yellowish lights and they didn't move. Each had its own shape. One cicular and the other was shaped like a comet with two tails and a round head. The sky was clear and the sun was setting. They looked like they were on the edge of earths atmosphere. I video taped about 30 to 60 seconds. Me and a friend kept an eye on the UFO's as we traveled west on the island. And as we dipped into valleys we couldn't see them (we were not in a line of sight). We watched them for about 5 more minutes then we lost track of them. They appeared to change into a circle as we traveled west. I have them on 8 MM video. I asked a local store owner about UFO's there and he said he sees them all the time but is afraid to tell anyone in fear they might think he is crazy (its a small town). Does anyone know of any similiar sightings on this island or around the world? What should I do with this video? Thanks. ((name deleted))
