Two Orange sphere appeared low on horizon just to left of North Star. One was hidden during filming I believe by trees. They hovered, not coming closer nor farther. Seemed to be fiery and rotating I belive counetr clockwise. I have video of whole event. They disappeared as fast as they appeared.

I don't even believe in UFO's or even the phenomenon that I witnessed last night, but replaying the video has prompted me to tell someone. September 24, 1998 North Pole Alaska approx 2235 AKDT until 2243 AKDT Northern sky low just west of the North Star. I had been outside filming the Northern Lights which were spectacular last night. I happened to look out kitchen window and saw two orange fiery balls hovering just above the horizon. I grabbed by video camera and filmed them. Only a short time did both appear together as the one on left was lower and believe the tree line blocked clear view. They did not move forward or back or up or down only when they finally disappeared as they seemed to slowly lower and sink into the horizon. The object can be seen clearly and rotating, I think counter clockwise. You can clearly see gases or image like fire encircling the objects. They appear like giant asteroids but how could they appear so close and yet not enter the atmosphere. I have NEVER seen nor witnessed anything like it. You can hear the dogs howl and whine in fear of whatever it was. I tried to call local news etc., but guess they think I'm nuts. I called the Air Force Security at Eilison AFB nearby and they put me on hold and simply said. "Contact public affairs in the morning and they will come and pick up the video."
