|Two blinking objects flying slowly across sky.
My daughter and I were outside hoping to see the Perseid meteor shower. Two objects flew east to west across the night sky. They were flying very straight and in a sort of formation, one first and the second on on his left flank. Flying lower than the normal cruising altitude of commercial aircraft, the lights were too big to be that high up, but not low enough to be coming in to land at the local airport. They stayed the same distance apart the whole time we could see them. They had one distinct bright white light and two other blinking lights, possibly red or orange. They were flying slow enough that we were able to watch them for a couple of minutes before they were out of site. Absolutely no sound at all. We live outside of town and it was very quiet.
