|2 connected lights high in the sky receding rapidly until disappearing
I was showing my son the Orion Nebula. I looked away from the lens and saw 2 very bright lights to the S.E. high up in the sky. I grabbed my binocs and the 2 lights appeared to be connected. It was similar in appearance to the pictures of the Phoenix lights in 1997 except with only 2 lights. (the 8:30 pics, not the ones of the probable flares later that night.)
As we watched the lights dimmed. The lights dimmed to fuzzy balls before disappearing. Through my Binocs it appeared to be a single object receding rapidly into the sky.
