Duration:45 seconds
We saw two very fast-moving objects take off.

I was walking up my front sidewalk when I looked towards the east at the moon. I was struck by the fact that there seemed to be 4 stars lined up in a straight row above the moon. I waited for my husband to put down what he was carrying to tell him to look at the stars. Just as I pointed them out to him, the two "stars" to the south suddenly started moving! They accelerated very rapidly and disappeared within just a couple of seconds. They did not fade out or anything, they just started moving and then disappeared. My husband and I both saw it very clearly. They were moving way too fast to be any kind of aircraft I know of. There was no sound at all.
