Two red glowing circles hovering in sky on July 4th.

On the night of July 4th, 2010 my family was outside in the front yard of my brotherís house. It was myself, a 31 year old female and my five year old daughter, my brother and his two children ages three and five, and my parents who are both in their fifties. We all live next door to each other in a very rural development at the base of Green Mountain which is known locally for UFO sightings. It was about 10:35 PM and we had just finished lighting our fireworks. The sky was clear and we were just catching one last glimpse of the fireworks being lit by the neighbors and getting ready to round up the kids and to say goodnight. As we were watching the eastern sky we saw a round object very similar in shape to a balloon appear and it was heading in a westerly direction. It was mostly red with a bright orange glow on the bottom third of the circle. At first, we actually thought that it was a helium balloon that someone had lit on fire and set free. But, ! the object was not acting like a balloon would. It would speed up, slow down, hover for a bit, change directions slightly and then suddenly veer off. We watched it for about three minutes over my brotherís house and then we noticed that coming in from the south was another one exactly like the first. This one was moving very quickly and heading right for the first one. When it was next to the first one they hovered silently together for about five minutes before they went straight up into the sky. Needless to say we were very disturbed but frankly we werenít sure if we had seen a UFO or some strange balloon trick by Fourth of July pranksters. It wasnít until last night when my brother was fooling around on the internet and found some reports of sights that we were sure of what we had seen. I personally have not read any other accounts or seen any videos of similar sightings, but I will be looking at them once I get this report filed to see how similar other sighting ! were to ours.
