Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Two starlike objects, traveling west to east, one behind the other, making no noise and travelng faster than normal jet traffic.

I let my dog out at 1820 that evening and glanced at the stars. I thought I noticed movement to the north looking about 30 degrees up, just over some tall pines nearby. I then noticed two stars traveling west to east, one behind the other, separated by what appeared to be a mile or more. I thought it was probably a couple military jets but I did not see any blinking lights so I went in to get my binoculars. Through the binoculars the objects appeared as stars,bright white lights and nothing else. There was no sound heard after their passing as there normally would be with jets. I got my son to take a look and we watched them disappear. They seemed to fade out or enter high clouds. Lights from the town tend to hamper the view of the sky in the direction they were traveling.
