Red lights try to hide.

My wife and I were traveling on Diehl Rd at Williams Grove Rd. At a stop sign we noticed a bright Red flickering object in the sky; both she and I noticed that it was moving steadily to the NE. I recall that neither of us was able to find the normal green and red alternating blinking of an airplane wing, only the orange-ish red that flickered like a flame.

Jokingly we expressed that it must be a UFO and drove to the Gate of Heaven Cemetery on York St, to get a better view. When we arrived the object was completely gone, despite a totally wide open nearly cloudless sky, we were not able to track the object or see it in the distance.

At that time I looked back, I saw what I believed to be two helicopters with red lights shining flying in the area from which we had just come. My wife and I immediately thought that they may be pursuing the object, and I thought I heard a faint sound of an engine, which my wife pointed out, was in fact an airplane flying di! rectly above us, compounded by highway noise.

At that moment, I realized that the objects, though they were rising in the sky, didn't seem to be getting any closer. It was then that my wife and I realized that they were 2 of the same objects we had chased, and we started taking photos and video.

The two objects were lit like fire, and flying in formation directly up. At one point the first object turned off its light, and I thought it had disappeared. The second object remained lit for a short time, but then also turned its light off.

I was able to see the first object, totally blacked out traveling towards the left of us, it seemed very fluid and steady paced, but I noticed that it seemed to be almost an oval that was rotating very slowly. As I filmed it, it seemed to descend slowly into the field opposite of us about a mile away.

We immediately jumped in our car and drove to where we believed it to be, but it was not visible, since it had gotten dark, and the second object was also no longer visible.
