Two parellel luminescent lights decended from sky and vanished over ocean without sound.

I was on a balcony admiring at the stars overlooking the Pacific ocean around 2 am. Looked up and saw two parellel lights decending and transited over my head. They moved simultaneosly out over the ocean. They were larger than a shooting star (about 3x) had a lumenescence, no tail, and much lower to the ground (about 10,000-15,000ft).They did not make a sound, and were moving very fast in perfect formation with each other.Were decending as they came closer to the ocean. I believe I witnessed something extraordinary and unexplainable. I went to the local Coast Guard office to file a report and see if anyone else (fishing ships) had witnessed it. They gave me this name and number.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness at some length, and we found her to be a very convincing witness. Her description was quite precise. PD))
