Sighting Details

I picked up my two sons from my ex wife’s house and was bringing them home. i saw two separate sets of lights that i initially thought were two airplanes, one following the other coming towards us. as we got closer i realized they were hovering. there were lights that looked like wing lights on an airplane that were white and constantly on. there was a smaller flashing light in the center of the craft, red on one craft and white on the other. i pointed them out to my son’s and as we got to the closest point that we could to them, pulled off the road. the closest one moved from a stationary point, banked and proceeded northeast. the other remained hovering for about 30-45 seconds, then banked in the same manner and followed the other craft. as it was night, we couldn’t make out the shape or color but they were definitely hovering, the size of both objects were the same and the way they banked, it made them appear to be fixed wing crafts.
