Duration:15-20 minutes

Shortly after 21:00 hours I went outside to snack on 3 pieces of left over pizza at a patio table next to my motor home. I saw some flashing lights in the sky. I thought at first they might be sky -searching advertising lights but saw no connection to the ground. I saw two very large circular/oval white nebulous shapes making very quick circular patterns in the sky. The two white shapes were hazier than search lights and their patterns danced quickly as if two children were playing with LED lights. They circled counter-clock-wise continuously and always avoided overlapping each other. They seem to be chasing each other like two butterflies in the sky. Their flight patterns seem to be extemporaneous and random circling left in small areas and at other times very large areas many miles apart. At times they disappeared behind thin layers of clouds. The clouds were not low and there were not many clouds. I was fascinated by this and thought to myself I had never seen anything like this in my 63 years on Earth. I walked two doors down and brought out my neighbor to view the scene. He agreed that he had never seen anything like that and added he did not believe that it could be search lights, LED lights or airplanes and stated that it looked very high. We watch the sky together for 10 minutes as the lights continued to circle in playful quick patterns. I heard the Apartment Mgr. calling her cat and went down two more trailers to tell her to look up in the sky but before I got there the lights disappeared. I went back to my patio table and watched the sky for another 30 minutes but saw no more activity.
