Duration:10 minutes
2 Stationary flashing red lights west of Canandaigua, NY. 500 feet above the ridge west of Cheshire.

Around 2 am I looked out my west facing dining room window. I saw 2 synchronized flashing lights hovering about 500 feet above a ridge that is about a mile from my house. The craft, (assuming the 2 lights were on the right and left edges), was around the size of a half dollar held at arms length. I watched the flashing lights for more than 5 minutes & they did not move. Curious, I stepped outside to watch them more closely. Unlike helicopters I have seen and heard in the area, there was no distinguishable sound.

I have not lived in the house for more than a couple of months, so after about 10 minutes of watching the lights, I decided that it must be a communications tower that I had not previously noticed. I went back to bed. In the morning after the sun came up, I realized that there is no tower or any structure that could be confused with the object that I saw.
