|Two lights in the night sky flying in apparent formation.
At approximately 21:35 local time, 28 April 2005, while smoking on my deck, I looked up to see two fairly bright lights near the zenith moving generally WSW to ENE. The lights were separated by the width of my first and second fingers held at arms length. I called my wife to the deck and she also observed the lights. As we watched the lights move, they appeared to get closer together, although that could have been a function of perspective. When we lost sight of them in the glow of Kansas City at approximately 30 degrees elevation, they were separated by approximately the width of my little finger held at arms length. No direction changes were observed. No anti-colision lights were seen, and I was able to observe stars between the two lights as they traversed the sky.
I checked JTrack, thinking it was perhaps the ISS with a Progress resupply rocket performing a rendevous, but the ISS was below the equator at the time of sighting.
