Duration:2 minutes
Orangish, white "stars" or "planets" in Orion's Belt, then moved and flew off

Orangish, white light. Like a star or planet. But, brightest light in sky. Just after dusk eastern time USA. 9/22/08. No blinking lights. Apparently not an aircraft. Not moving in straight line nor had speed as a sun-reflected orbiting craft would have looked like. Length of viewing: 30 seconds.

In east, northeastern sky. In Orion’s Belt halfway in gap between lower two stars and top star. Then moved down and to the left (a 3-10 degrees), hovered, and moved away until light faded away.

Then, a few days later., I saw the same thing in the same place. In Orion’s Belt halfway in gap between lower two stars and top star. Only this time it was two star-sized lights. Stayed precisely same distance from each other as they moved down, to the left, and faded away (appeared to be moving away from me). Length of viewing: 2 minutes.

Noticed low-flying aircraft in that direction (a couple of small private planes) and maybe a commercial jetliner flight), but slower than the objects and didn't seem to be associated with the lights.

Looked at a NASA website to see if ISS or other orbiting craft were above my location, but didn’t come up with anything.
