Location: Lancster, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 to 3 minutes
Saw 2 lights in the sky that looked just like stars, but when one brighened and then both lights dimmed to nothing.

I was standing in my front yard in Lancaster California looking at the stars when I noticed 2 stars that just didn't seem right. What brought my attention to them was that one of the stars brightend to aprox -3.0 mag. the brightest thing in the sky. The other thing was they didn't move, at first I thought they maybe planes or a satellite but no movement. I watched them for about 2-3 minutes before one brightened and then they both faded out to nothing at the same time, the thing that struck me was how much they looked like regular stars with a slight twinkle before the disapearing act.The sky was clear, no wind, small city light polution. I was facing North looking at the North star and the Constellation Draco which with the included Strar chart I am sending you shows the exact location of the 2 lights.The color of the objects were that of the stars, when one brightened to a bright white light.
