I saw 2 orange balls of light traveling very fast that made a 90 degree turn down and went into Lake Erie.

Hi my name is Kevin Schmidt I live in Cleveland Ohio. One night back in the summer of 2008 I saw 2 orange balls of light going east along the shore of Lake Erie flying maybe 2000 feet high. The objects were traveling much faster than anything man made. The objects then made a 90 degree turn north without slowing down traveled for about another 20-30 seconds then turned straight down out of view and went into the lake. Iím assuming they went into the lake. I couldnít actually see the water from where I was but there was nowhere else for them to go but into the water. The objects made no sound and were close enough that if was conventional aircraft I would have heard an engine. I know what I saw was real objects and was definitely not any conventional aircraft!
