Bright orange lights appear in remote Wyoming area, twice!

Approximately 12:30 AM, on warm clear June 24 night, I turned off the TV and stepped out onto the deck to gaze at the half moon and stars.

In the Eastern sky, two bright orange-yellow lights appeared about 30 degrees over the horizon. I viewed them with binoculars and managed to get a photo of one of the lights. The lights were barrel shaped, bright yellow in color, and had a orange-red belt running across their middle. The lights hovered for approximately 10 minutes before slowly descending below the horizon. They did not appear to be very far away, 5 to 10 miles maybe.

I waited about ten minutes longer hoping to see them again. Then, the lights slowly rose above the horizon again and hovered for about another ten minutes before they descended below the horizon for a second time. I stayed up about another half hour but the lights did not reappear.

This event took place out in the east central Wyoming countryside, 8 miles from town, in an area that is remote and sparsely populated.

I viewed similar lights in this location several years ago at about the same time of year. Could this be an astral phenomenon?
