Location: Cuernavaca (Mexico),
Shape: Flash
Duration:5-10 seconds
Two star-like objects sighted in Cuernavaca, Mexico, one flashed and then both disappeared.

I was watching the sky at dusk. The only "stars" visible some minutes before eight were the planets Venus over the Western horizon and what I think was Jupiter near zenith, close to the Moon. I took my eyes off the sky for a while. Some minutes later, I searched for additional stars in an already darker sky. I again looked at the area where Jupiter and the Moon were and I saw two really bright objects which at first I took to be stars, when one of them gave a really bright flash and then the two of them started fading until they completely disappeared from the dark sky. I kept staring at the area of the sky where this happened for several minutes, but the objects did not reappear.
