ufo lights seen

It was around 10:00pm on the 31st december 2008, i was watching t.v and two orange glowing lights caught my eye from outside, at first i thought it was the engines of a plane on fire they were quite high up in the sky and i was worried so i went up to the window and called my partner over, we must have watched these lights for at least five minutes.

During that time the two lights got larger as they obviously got closer or lower, you could tell that they were hovering and were moving in sync with each other. They moved fom east to south west as they drew closer we could hear a loud whirring sound almost the same as a very low helicopter ( they were still quite high up in the sky, i can only compare it to maybe a helicopter thats at full hight, it was hard to tell.), they moved almost as though they were observing something.

I could not see a shape or a object around the two lights they were almost like just two orange balls of fire, as they went west they came to a standstill literaly side by side ( if this had been any aircrafts they would have certainly crashed) the two lights then became one and it slowly got smaller and smaller and higher until eventually it dissapeared (like when you watch a boat sail out to sea). It looked to me as though they had litterally left the atmosphere, it was a completely clear night.

About an hour later my partner saw one of the lights again but for a split second before it had gone again.

These lights were no aeroplane or fireworks, i am completely taken aback by what i saw we actually called the police and Ministry of defence to report them!!
