Two Orbs Over Central Illinois

Last night while walking the dog before going to bed (+/- 9:45pm) I noticed a bright light, at what appeared to be at a low altitude, moving due west from my location. The light was moving slowly enough to allow me to get my binoculars to view the object. In the binoculars the light appeared as two distinct round orbs. The orb on the left appeared to be lime/pale/green in color and the ord on the right appeared to be deep orange. The lights moved west, over the span of approximately 10 minutes before disappearing from field of view. The lights appeared to slowly fade out. The orbs faded while being observed with the binoculars.

The sky was overcast and no stars were observed. No other air traffic was observed. No aircraft collision lights were observed around the orbs. The light did not vary their color and only varied their brightness when fading away. I have observed this type of sighting several times prior to this event. Without the use of binoculars the object appeared as a single bright light to the naked eye. The object did not descend or ascend, over the 10 minutes being observed, and appeared to maintain a level altitude.
