Stationary lights in the path of the ISS

Viewed at Idaho Falls Id. Oct. 1 2008, 8:03 MDT. While watching the ISS fly over I observed two bright lights near the track of the ISS, As the ISS neared them they dimmed and dissapeared. The ISS was at 18* up, so the lights must have been at 28-30*up,, The lights were at approximatly 30* east of north arranged verticaly with the seperation of a pencil width held at arms lenght. The intensity of the lights were as bright as a near Venus when I first noted them and had dimmed to nuthing in eight seconds.

Sky conditions were a bit hazy to the north and the ISS did dissapear behind a cloud at one time to the west of where I had seen the lights and it was somewhat hazy below the lights.
