|Strange object with two lights.
On the 3rd of July at 3:00am almost exactly, I saw a very strange object\objects.
I work the night shift and when I came home, I noticed I needed to get milk for the kids in the morning and went outside to go to the local gas station to get a gallon. I forgot my wallet and began going inside the house. I had just peeked up towards the south sky for a second and thought I had seen a satellite or fireball at first moving across the sky. I took a couple of steps back to see around my roof line by my front porch and noticed not only 1 large star, but one small one directly under it and moving exactly with it. Measurements are hard to describe but it must have been low and very large as I will explain. As it moved east slowly, I noticed it must have been a solid object since it would block out other stars in between the two star type lights. It suddenly stopped and began going south, now directly in front of me, and as the lights seemed to dim and become closer and go up higher , the more stars would show around it so I know it was moving upwards and away from me at the same time. The size must have been huge although I cannot honestly say how big. We don't have any type of blimps, laser displays or anything of the sort here as it is a small area with mostly woods and a lake. The only example I can give is to look at the two end stars on the cup of the big dipper as that was "aproximately" the distance between them, and picture those two stars moving in unisen sideways. There was no noise at all, not even a whoosh or anything, like it was gliding in a sound proof room. The two lights eventually looked like one as they seemed to merge and at this point very faint, and then just dissappeared. I may add that there were no planes and living in the country , it's easy to hear even a small plane or jet that is very high.
