2 bright lights, starlike, moving across the sky, one following the other, not close, both lights fade to pinkish hue then dissapear.
This sighting was over Shelbyville, Indiana, approx 11:00, the night of Wednesday, June 20, 2007. 2 objects sighted, objects did not show any flashing traffic lights, just a solid bright white light, looked more like a star than an airplane. One object leading, one following, on what looked to be the same course. The second object was not close to the first. Objects were very high in the sky. Objects came from the northwest traveling south east. Objects were observed for approx 1-2 minutes as they crossed the sky. About 3/4 of the way across the sky, the first objects bright white light began to dim to a faint pinkish/redish hue, then to nothing, no lights at all. Hard to tell exactly, but it did look like that when the second object got to the same place in the sky where the first object had started to dim, the second objects bright white light started to dim also, going to a faint pinkish/redish hue, then to no lights at all. The area of the sky where the lights blinked off was constantly observed for approx 10-15 minutes after the lights went off, and no lights/activity was noticed. Not being an expert, but knowing what the commercial jets look like at night that fly in this area, all have some form of blinking traffic lights. I cannot see these as being commercial planes. Probably military???, but why would they turn off their lights completely? I just thought this abnormal behavior for 2 airplanes flying together at night, and may be this might be of interest.
