2 very bright lights in the sky...definitely not aircraft.

When I walked outside, I looked east/southeast when I witnessed two distinct very bright objects at about 45 degrees in the sky (visually about 3 inches apart, one on top of the other), to the left of the star Sirius. My initial reaction was that they were stars as they had the same characteristics, however I knew that there were no bright stars in that area. I observed them for approx. 1 minute. They did not move and made no sound. They then DISAPPEARED INSTANTLY. I have a military background. They were definitely NOT aircraft.

I spend a lot of time out on my deck at night and I am familiar with the night sky, airplanes, known stars/constellations, Venus, etc. I have never seen anything like this.
