Duration: 2-5 minutes
Two very bright lights moving across the sky... one slightly lower than the other. Both vanish within a couple of minutes...

It was around sunset, the sky was clear, and we were all sitting around on the beach talking when we noticed two very bright lights (like a star, but around sunset) moving slowly across the sky. They were a small distance apart, one slightly lower than the other. They were there for a few minutes, then one suddenly disapeared, followed closely by the second, which lingered for about 20 more seconds, than disapeared as well. Now I've heard many cover up stories to prove that this was no ufo, but I am prepared to give facts towards what I saw. These lights were too high to be airplanes, and they weren't fireworks, missiles from submarines, rockets from Cape Canaveral, or fighter jets issued by Patrick Airforce Base (which is down the road) because it was too high for any of these objects to be. The two lights were brighter than anything I had ever seen in the sky, not to mention there was absolutely no sound whatsoever coming from the objects. They just appeared, moved slowly across the sky, then vanished within a blink of an eye. People across the state as far as Tampa witnessed these lights.
