Location: Bettendorf, IA
Shape: Light
Duration: 2 minutes
facing East I saw an large orange light (I thought it was medivac hel.) no sound. I called my sister to look out. phone 20:55 call lasted 1.5 min. a second orange light appeared out of the same direction heading West. When the first light was just above me it made a wide turn and headed North. 3 or 4 seconds later the second light turned North. the first light faded out and the second one did at the same distance. the light was the same brightness on approach as it was leaving. (the light was the thing, not like a spot light) NO SOUND. after a min. a plane came out of the North West and I could hear it, and see the wing, tail, and strobe light.
