Location: Wheeling, WV
Shape: Light
Duration:20 Seconds
Two lights, in close proximity (approximately 3-4 degrees apart, very bright (brighter than venus) and without flicker, in the NNE. . .

At approximately 9:00PM, went outside, and noticed two lights, in close proximity (approximately 3-4 degrees apart, very bright (brighter than venus) and without flicker, in the NNE sky, about 30-40 degrees above the horizon. I would have initially dismissed them as stars, except their proximity, extreme brightness, and lack of flicker were notably out of place for what I am accustomed to see in that direction of the sky - which caught my attention enough to notice that they were slowly moving N / NNE. Having seen the international space station traverse the night sky at an astronomy event once, I would suggest these were as bright and similar in style, except there were two of them and much slower moving. I went inside to get my fiance to invite her to share in this unusual event, and was gone for about 10 seconds. When I returned, they were gone. I do not necessarily think it was a UFO - could have possibly been a satellite or something like that. Hoping to corroborate other reports?
