|Two orange-red dots flying at very high altitude and exhibiting great speed and unusual manueverability.
I am unsure of the exact time period when I observed these objects, but I believe it may have been around the time of the Hyakutake? comet event. I was standing on my back porch looking at a small area directly above when I observed 2 orange-red "dots" that in my best estimation were traveling several hundred yards or more apart and at great speed and altitude. Suddenly, one object turned toward the other object, and with amazing precision and speed came along side the other at now less than 50 yards away. Then they disappeared behind trees across the street from my house. I am now 34 years old and have been fascinated with aircraft(identified and unidentified)since I was about 8 years old. I am somewhat familiar with many commercial and military aircraft. I find myself compelled to look at them any time I happen to hear or see them in flight. In my judgement, these objects were easily at an altitude twice that of a commercial aircraft at cruising. I believe my perception of altitude was enhanced by my witnessing a meteor around 1987 while standing on the rooftop of a local 10 story building. The meteor's trajectory was virtually straight in from my vantage point. I was very fortunate to be in the right place and time to witness it from beginning to end. Furthermore, regarding the U.F.O.'s, what truly amazed me was the movement of the one object that veered closer to the other was that it didn't fall into a position slightly behind the one that stayed on a straight path. It seems as though it turned , accelerated and then matched speed again with the other all in less than 1 sec. over the previosly mentioned distance of separation. In my opinion, these were not f-15's from L.A.F.B. or any other aircraft from anywhere around the Hampton Roads area.
