Location: Houston, TX
Shape: Egg
Duration:19:54
Saw what at first appeared to be 2 stars in the horizon.

Coming home going west to the interstate 45, i noticed the sun going down and the sky was a brilliant orange red. I looked again and saw what appeared to be stars, but then noticing that can't be with the sun still up. They were above the sun and one was above the other but offset a little to the south. The bright obects had a orange glow. I assume because of the sky. I saw a commercial airplane leaving Houston Intercontinental and was heading west towards the objects. As i was looking again, the one object on top got bigger and looked kinda like a egg, but had two orange lights on the front. In an instant they were both gone. I searched the sky but did not see them again. I learned tonight a friend of mine saw the same thing a few nights earlier farther north near his home @ about 02:30.
