Bright green lights floating in space with a strange motion pattern.

While driving back home with a friend, we noticed two bright green lights [same color like a laser beam], a little bigger than the stars on the background. They were floating in space with a slow motion on straight lines, with abrupt change in direction, constant motion with the same pattern while they were gaining altitude, tll we lost the sight of them. At first they were under a low cloud [3,000 feet] making them very easy to see, then they moved on a Westerly direction away from the cloud and we were able to follow them clearly even with the stars on the background. At this point we stopped the car, turned the lights off and got out to get a better view of this weird sight that last for about 5 minutes. What we noticed was a constant size with the increase of altitude, we lost the sight because the brightness and color went less and less. The location was the city of Lihue on the island of Kauai, Hawaii and the lights were SouthWest from us, moving on a Westerly direction. They were not a conventional aircraft [nothing can fly like that so far] or something orbiting the hearth. We are both Airline Pilots and we never seen anything like that before and we were unable to give an explation to it. This is the main reason why we decided to report this strange episode.
