2 orb-like craft witnessed over Carmichael area of Sacramento

10.16.13 At approximately 10:23 observed two orbs of light above the Foothill Farms/Carmichael area of Sacramento (near Madison and Hackberry).

Initially, they were close together and hovering completely silent. One was orange-red and the other yellow-white.

These lights did not pulse like aircraft anti-collision lights.

After my initial shock, I was able to take some poor quality video with my phone starting 10:25:59 and running 45 seconds.

The orbs separated and flew away – south for the orange-red orb and southwest for the yellow-white orb – at a moderate speed.

After a few seconds, the lights “winked” out.

I cannot tell if there are clouds to the south of Carmichael, so I do not know if that was a factor.
