Two Bright Lights With No Stars in the Sky

At about 6:30 PM myself and 4 others witnessed two very bright white lights in the sky to the Southwest. These two objects moved very little in the beginning and when they did they stayed parallel to one another. A couple times in the duration of watching them they moved further apart and closer together, yet stayed a mirror image to each other in formation. At times they appeared to have a slight color variation, ranging from yellow, to blue, to green, to red, to purple.

Now at about 15 minutes into our sighting, I was able to look through a a scope and see each of them at different times much closer and clearer. Though they were both definitely different objects they were similar in appearance. Using the scope I determined the general shape of each object was actually round. To me they looked like a bubble such as kids play with. I had difficulty holding the scope still enough until about 45 minutes later when I had a solid surface I could actually see up close what appeared to be a myriad of individual white lights flashing on the craft!

At about this time my neck could take no more as the object I was focusing on was almost directly overhead now and it was getting dark. By the time I was able to come back stars were out and I could no longer locate the objects.
