Three green Obs observed over Vancouver Friday 13th 2009

Last night Nov 13th was the only clear night I've been able to use my telescope in over 3 weeks. At approx 11:15 pm last night I saw three low flying silent green orbs fly over at low altitude traveling from east to west directly along the normal flight path that commercial aircraft take to land in Vancouver when approach is from land. However, I am very familiar with commercial aircraft and I was not able to identify these aircraft or objects in anyway. The last of the three appeared to be a glowing disc flying through the night sky.

Now I am going to speculate and offer my own logical as to an explanation. I would like someone to hopefully respond with an objective opinion. Stealth aircraft have their afterburners turned up so that they are not heard easily from the ground at low altitude. They also might have a green light on the top of the aircraft. As the afterburn of fuel from their engines is directed upwards it might have caused condensation to form thus appearing as a glowing green object from the ground in the cool temperature. I guesstimates the speed at approximately 700-1000 miles per hour yet no sonic boom which is curious indeed. However we know this technology has been worked on for years to what level of success I don’t know. We also know that a condensation halo can be formed around an aircraft at speed depending on atmospheric conditions. I am an amateur astronomist and have been for years and I've never ever seen anything like this before either prior or post military or otherwise. I ! don’t really want to say that they were extraterrestrials but I really don’t have any explanation for this at all. I always like to error on the side of caution. However the site of these objects was really something! One more thought due to Olympics we know they’ve been flying aircraft over Vancouver city often. But not like these ones I think! Any thoughts?
