Two bright orange balls of light that moved quickly around each other, then suspended, then slowly, one by one, disappeared from viewMy friend and I were driving east on Monroe Avenue in the town of Brighton, in Rochester, NY, on March 15, 2009. We were going home from a friend’s house after watching a show together. The time was approximately 12:30 AM.Almost immediately, I saw two bright orange balls of light in the sky, diagonally north of where we were driving. I yelled for her to pull over. We quickly parked in a parking lot facing the objects, in front of the Towpath Hotel. We jumped out of the car, and at that time, a man in another car pulled into the hotel and parked. We did not get his name, but the three of us watched this phenomenon together. These two objects moved at a very fast rate, independently, in all different directions, around each other, then they suddenly stopped and seemed suspended, parallel to each other. They were large and appeared to be at about the height that a plane would fly when descending.My friend took a picture on her cell phone. After a couple of minutes, the ball on the right very slowly seemed to recede and disappear. After it was completely out of sight, the ball on the left slowly receded, on a parallel path to that of the first one, until it disappeared. The three of us talked about it briefly, with all of us agreeing that they could not have been lights or aircraft that we’ve seen before. My friend and I felt thrilled to have witnessed such an event, as we have never had this happen to us before.We both have our masters degrees; I am a fifth grade teacher and my friend is a computer programmer.Last night, we bought the book, The Phoenix Lights, and agreed that what we saw looked exactly like the orbs on the cover. We are curious if there were other reports from our area or other locations on that day.
