I saw a pair of strange lights in the early morning sky that disappeared in a strange fashion.

I was on my way home from work a few minutes before 4:00 a.m. on 6/28/1998. As I drove up the street towards my driveway I noticed 2 "lights" about halfway up the east-southeast sky (they were located near the brightest early morning star), they were about twice the size of an average star (each light) and were very close together. They were stationary for a few seconds, then dropped down maybe 10 degrees and then straight up and disappeared into the sky. This all happened in a time span of less than 5 seconds. I pulled into my driveway and jumped out but could not see any indications of where the lights went. These lights moved very quickly and smoothly.
