Deep red and yellow with multiple tails behind

I was setting up my telescope when a friend of mine stopped by. He mentioned that he had looked through a telescope but hasn’t ever actually seen anything through one. So I set up the telescope and first focus on Saturn abs have him look. Then I gave him check out Jupiter and it’s different colored layers. Then I say to him the fun part is when you point it in an area where you can’t see anything and play with the focus. I set the focus to see past Jupiter and turned the telescope 180 degrees. My friend looks through the lens and says, “What the f***, you’re going to want to see this.” When I looked I could see two of whatever they were.(I’ll include a drawing of what we saw). They were red and yellow circular in shape with multiple flame like tails trailing behind them like some kind of propulsion system. For the matter of their size the circular part at the front looked to be about the same size Jupiter has appeared maybe 2 minutes before seeing these, but the trails were massive. I looked away for a second to look at my friend and say,”whoa.” When I looked back they were gone. I instantly did a drawing of what we had seen so I wouldn’t forget. I’m a fairly decent artist although you wouldn’t be able to tell from this drawing because I did it fast so nothing would be lost from my memory. I’m pretty Good with proportions seeing as how I have to make drawings to scale for my company. But this is what they looked like.
