NIGHT LIGHTS

On 17 Apr 02 at approximately 2120 (CST) my husband and I were in our backyard enjoying the clear night sky. We heard an usual jet engine noise coming from a Southern direction, which we later saw (2) Military jets flying one behind the other. Not more than 2-3 mintues later a pair of lights came from the opposite direction, thinking it was probably the same jets coming back, but this time the lights were moving at least twice the height distance. The lights were not blinking and there was no sound. The lights moved at the same equal distance the jets were flying apart. The lights moved slowly across the sky, took a Eastern turn then disappeared. This all happened within 5-6 minutes.

((NUFORC Note: Probably an observation of the International Space Station and Space Shuttle (STS-110) flying in close proximity. Please see the "Heavens-Above" website listing for the entry:
