|Observed two lights moving fast and near miss to aircraft
While sitting on my back porch, I observed a single light with the brightness equal to that of Jupiter on a southwest to northeast track. The light was a blue-white light, like a star or planet. There was no sound. I followed the light until it was obscured from view by trees. Compared to commercial aircraft that fly over my house, on a southeast to northwest track normally, this object appeared to fly about twice as fast. Also, there was no strobe activity, and it seemed to be lower in altitude than commercial aircraft that fly over. Approximately 10 minutes later, I observed a commercial aircraft on a northwest to southeast track, with strobes flashing. What appeared to be above, and on a perpendicular track, was a single light similar to the one I saw earlier, only not as bright. The dim light actually intersected the path of the commercial craft, but it seemed at a higher altitude. I also followed this light until it was obscured by trees.
