Location: Ottawa (Canada), ON
Shape: Light
Duration: 1-2 min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
2 glowing orange orbs, no sound, no apparent mass remained perfectly equidistant the entire time observed.

My girlfriend and I were just watching TV when I looked outside the patio door. At first I thought it was a couple of fireworks shot up. Looked away, but looked right back and realized they weren't falling. I said what the hell is that? My girlfriend immediately got up off the sofa and I went out onto our deck and watched them.

What were they? 2 orange lights in the sky moving from the Northwest to the Southwest. They moved very slowly but at an unwavering pace. Did not make a sound.

What was amazing was, the entire time we watched them, they never moved closer or further apart but kept perfect distance from each other. I would say we watched them for about a good minute to a minute and a half as they passed overhead until we lost sight of them when they passed over to the other side of our building. They could not have been that high as we could have watched them for a fair bit longer if they were higher.

My girlfriend remarked at one point that they kind of looking like floating candles ( the flame of a candle, that sort of colour ). I thought perhaps they were fighter planes or perhaps helicopters flying in formation but there were no other lights other than that emanating from what could only have been the center of their mass. Did not detect a real mass or shadow behind them either.

In terms of shape round, but more like glowing orbs.

In terms of backgrounds, I am a 36 year old lawyer and my girlfriend is a 42 year old medical research assistant.

Anyway, pretty amazing we both feel privileged to have witnessed that.
