|Two bright objects just south of Chicago never moving, just fad away.
At the stated time above I saw two bright objects with a magnitude of around -2.0 roughly 15 degrees SE of the constellation of Cassiopea. Both objects did not move or make a sound.
The lower object would then start to dim and eventually the upper object would start to dim off. Both would "turn off" at the same time.
There was a meteor shower going on at the same time, but there is no evidence of meteors "falling" toward my home.
I am an amateur astonomer and have been for over 25 years. I also write a column on astronomy. I can not ID these objects.
