Two green lights over 10,000 lakes festival 3am sunday morning 7-24-05, blast into sky

My friend and I were sitting around a campfire and we were talking about our weekend. There had been a lot of fireworks being shot off that earlier that night, but there were some "fireworks" in the distance that wouldn't go away. My friend was the first to point it out, but once he pointed I saw them. There were two green lights hovering stationary above the horizon, about 2-3 miles away (estimated).

We thought they were sparks from the fireworks that were falling to the ground, but they never fell and they were very large at the distance we were viewing them.

They started to move apart from one another slowly in a horizontal manner. Then the light on the right moved vertical above the one on the left.

At this point my mind was reeling trying to figure out what this was we were watching. Next, the lower light moved to be even with the light on the right and very quickly after they were even, the light on the right blasted straight up ward at a speed I have never witnessed before, very very fast.

After that one was about half way out of sight the other one on the left took off at equal fast speed. These lights never changed colors they stayed bright green the whole time. They never left a trail of light either, just a small bit behind the craft as they went up into the sky.

Despite possibly being tired we were not on any drugs or alcohol to alter our state of mind.
