Radioacive Neon Bats ?

Sitting in 4th floor roof garden,late summr, innercity neighborhood with dogs barking, neighbors record player, cars passing, view of Chicago skyline aprox 1 mile away. Old aircraft beacon sweeps the sky, to the rooftop on normal rotation. In the beacon 2 dull silver disks about the size of garbage can lids sweep past aprox. 4 feet from us with accomping swishhhhhh noise. WE turn to watch....mid point of roof they take off FAST!~~~ higher faster sound... neighbohood now dead trafic, music dogs. GAin altidute atincreadable speed moving n/nw, the lights begin...yellow/orange, green/blue carnaval ride type colors. They intertwine manuveing as they climb. At apex they join together and disapear. Neighborhood noise continues, can hear cars strating on main street, music begins mid song on record player.

All this takes place in the time it takes to say..."what was that?" "Radioactive neon bats." Without saying another word we returned the apartment we both wrote a discription of the experience. Without consulting each other the doscriptions matched.
