My girlfriend and I were out for a walk in the snow when she stopped to look at the moon which had appeared from behind the clouds. She suddenly pointed out two brightly lit points of light in the sky, heading in a S-SW direction. She asked if they were birds, and when I saw them, my immediate reaction was "Hell No!" The two seperate lights caught up to each other, in a leap frog fashion, each crossing and catching up to the first. Both were evenly lit from below, and in the area we were in, could not have been lit from below. I listened as well, given the low cloud cover, and could not hear any sign of aircraft noise. I have extensive experience in video, as well as audio and have filmed both cars at high speed and planes. I have seen and videotaped everything from A-10's to F-14 and F-16 aircraft, as well as Stealth aircraft at near and far range. With the cloud cover, the noise should have been obvious as the sound would have been reflected by the clouds. There was no perceivble sound. Both points of light disappeared into a cloud bank and we saw nothing more after that. I immediately started running through things in my head to make sure I had time and distance and direction. My girlfriend was freaked out that I was so freaked by the situation. I also have experience in visually tracking satellites and other space based objects, and nothing I have experience with could explain what I saw. As mentioned, the two objects converged on each other and diverged at a fairly high rate of speed, and remained consistently lit. I have never seen conventional aircraft perform in the manner of these unidentified objects.

We went out again tonight, and were able to easily identify any aircraft in the air, including a helicopter returning to Ft Lewis. Nothing looked or behaved like the objects seen the night before.
