UFOs Over San Juan, Puerto Rico

What's going on in Puerto Rico?
Under a clear blue sky at 5:50 PM, on March 25, 2000, an aerial show was mounted over San Juan, Puerto Rico by two high flying objects.
The objects were seeing by several ground eyewitnesses as they were traveling in opposite directions. One was traveling west at an approximate bearing of 295-degrees magnetic. The other was traveling east at a bearing of 115-degrees magnetic. At least one of the eyewitnesses, Celestino "Junior" Ortiz, a popular radio announcer for Alpha Rock 105.7 FM was able to capture both objects on his camcorder.
As he was leaving his house, he, his wife and son, and friends spotted de mysterious objects toward the west at about a 20-degree angle. He rushed for his camcorder and begun filming.
The objects initially looked liked comets or meteors entering the atmosphere. The object traveling east passed high above over the eyewitness and the members of his family. No sound of jet engines or sonic boom were heard as it flew by. A few days later Mr. Ortiz contacted Luz Guzman and requested her to study his case. A preliminary visual analysis of the video showed a bright object that looked like two spheres, one behind the other and a perpendicular structure coming out to the side between the spheres. Behind the object there was a zone of clear sky of about the same length of the object's fuselage and then there was a small vapor contrail. At times the observers reported that the object had an orange glow. The contrail was about 30 times the length of the object's fuselage.
The two objects traveled in opposite directions until they were out of the line of sight. Many separate frames of video were enhanced and enlarged to search for any indication of airplane wings on both sides of the object in order to dismiss this sighting as a high flying jet airplane, but no evidence of wings were identified.
On the same day of this sighting, one hour later at 6:50 p.m., one of the objects was seen as it headed out to sea at a bearing of 330 degrees magnetic. Reports of this sighting were received at a local Ufology radio program describing the same objects later that night.
This was the second UFO sighting two days in a row over San Juan. Although there may be no relation, the two sightings took place in the week that high military officers from Latin America and USA were meeting at a military base on southern Puerto Rico and a new over the horizon radar (ROTER) that may be associated to HAARP was being activated on the island.
-Luz Guzman and Orlando Pla from OVNI.NET are investigating this case.-

At the same time, we received reports from the south side of Puerto Rico, Cabo Rojo and Lajas, of UFOs sightings, but eyewitnesses discovered that it was an airplane, a Jumbo Jet size airplane, with many color lights and a strong white spot light in the center, flying at low altitude and with almost not sound. "We don't know its intentions or to whom the Jet airplane belongs" our friends reported. "It was seeing flying around 8 p.m..and at midnight. Many people mistakenly report it as a UFO, that is why we started a night vigil and discovered it was an airplane. We only heard a very low sound when it flow over us".
The witnesses do not want their names become public.
NOTE: By coincidence, this sighting also took place in the week that high military officers from Latin America and USA were meeting at a military base on southern Puerto Rico and a new over the horizon radar (ROTER) that may be associated to HAARP was being activated on the island.
