Location: Blue Springs, MO
Shape: Light
Duration:<min
Two lighted objects of varying intensity intersect @ same location in space within 20 seconds of each other.

Clear night observing stars overhead while standing in the backyard of my residence when a light, moving north was noticed. It had a luminicent value I would estimate of that of planet venus. As I watched it traveling north and as it approached a dark area of space (no stars readily visible without aid), the object reduced its luminicent value very rapidly as though as only seen here on earth, that someone turns off a household lightbulb and as you watch it, it fades until no light emminates from it. The first object did not initiate any further display of light. Continuing my scan of that area for another 15 or 20 seconds, I noticed another light approaching from the southeast, somewhat less in brightness than the first observance, but bright enough to be able to follow it with the naked eye.

As the second lighted object approached the nearly identical position of the first lighted object, where it had faded and then dissappeared from sight, the second object abruptly disappeared. No fading light like the first object, just instant darkness.

The observance of these two separate objects lasted for less than 1 minute.

As I observed the first light moving to the north, and fading as it did, my initial thought was that it was a satellite or similar object of man made origin. That was my thought until I observed the second lighted object. When both objects terminated their visible light at what I estimated was nearly the identical place in space, my estimation of what they could be now was unquestionably changed.

Were these extraterrestial in origin, or was one terrestial and the other extraterrestial? Unknown at this time! A scan of some star charts will help identify the location in space where these two lighted objects intersected. That will be my next step and further reporting once clearly identified.

I'm not sure if maybe the NASA ISS was orbiting at this time of the evening and that was the initial sighting. Don't have that information at this time.
