Well, it is a little unusual that you saw what appeared to be the same object twice, a week apart, but it still could have been a meteor...
Firstly, meteors do not necessarily have to have tails. Some have no tail what so ever, and just look like a star or point of light moving across the
sky. Others have a very short wake, just as you describe, giving them a teardrop shape.
Secondly, meteors belonging to the same shower will all head away from a single point/area of the sky. Eg. Leonids radiate away from Leo. This area of
the sky remains relatively constant for the average shower over the course of a week. They also often share many similarities in appearance and
What I'm driving at, is that if your two sightings were about the same time (I'm assuming they were) at night, then two very similar meteors,
belonging to the same shower could easily appear to take the same course, even a week apart.
It is not very likely, but it is not altogether impossible either. IMHO it is still a more likely explanation than seeing a UFO, although I do not
want to dismiss any possibility at this stage.
I've had a look for candidate showers, but the start of December has allot of showers active, and there are no obvious showers that I can see at this
It would be good if you could provide a few more details of the sightings that might help to narrow it down - What were the times you saw the objects
at? How long were they visible for? How high above the horizon in degrees were they? If you took North as 0 degrees, and South as 180 degrees, at what
degree value were the start and end points?
