Large silver object hovering in N Horizon with 2 white lights side by side. Took off in steep climb

I walked out of my office near Tulsa Intl. Airport (I am S/W of the airport—maybe 3 miles away to S & 1 mile W of airport). I immediately noticed a really bright & large silver object with two really bright spotlight looking white circle lights side by side, it was hovering in the lower horizon straight N. It looked like it had an erie glow all around it, it was huge. I watched it for 2 mins. It just hovered in same spot. I kept turning around looking for coworkers to come out & everytime I looked at it—it had not moved. Then finally a coworker came out & he finally saw it & not long after that it took off almost streight up to a very steep climb to the West & was gone really quick. (It was a really high climb & a steep angle climb for a usual airplane to make). It also left a contrail at about a 60° angle.

Living & working close to the airport I am used to seeing airplanes at all altitudes & all kinds. That WAS NO AIRPLANE. With all the maddness going on, could have been military servelance of some kind that I've never seen. Don't know.

My boss also saw a strange happening about 2 hours later off hwy. 75 (which is a lot of miles to the West of where I saw this thing) he was going north about 8:00. It was dark & he said he noticed something in sky really bright with lights similar to an airplane but knew it was no airplane & kept watching it—it also seemed to hover & flying erraticaly Going N then S then suddenly making really strange turns that a normal airplane could not make. He pulled off road & got out of car looking at it & it took off really quick. (I would guess he saw same thing only 2 hours later in the dark)
