Two large amber glowing objects over Nampa/ Caldwell Idaho

At 10;49 My wife went out on the back patio for a cigarette, She immediately saw two amber glowing objects right next to each other about 9 o’clock in the sky. 10 times bigger than the brightest star. She called me after figuring out they were not air craft. I came out and also saw the two objects. One was just below the second. Both were very bright amber colored. Radiating out light and floating with no sound. The lower one started dimming and started to drop and eventually dimmed out. The upper one started to go away from us and get higher and slowly dimmed out. I called my son who finally made it out and also witnessed. The total time was about 3 minutes. I started this report and called back out, It’ back! Approximately 11:08 pm. My son had grabbed binoculars and both he and my wife saw that it was triangular in shape and sold color. I caught about 15 seconds of video and it went back up and away from us. My son thought he saw a light come out! of one object and shoot downwards.

Seen to the north west direction.

My son is 20 years old., My wife a house wife and I have been a manager for 20 years. Seen a lot of things but nothing like this. I kept thinking if some one was hoaxing with a flare but it was about 1500 yards from us if not closer and no sputtering or strobe that you would see from a flare and no wobbling if something tied to a balloon and released. I got the first on my phone video and need to review yet.
