|Two lights ran across the sky, as bright as the North star but twice as fast as any sattelite. - the first object seemed to hit someth
Three people outside in a clearing were talking about starts and satellites when, from the southwest at 8:07 PM came a bright object similar in size and brightness to the North star, and seemingly as far away. Only seconds after it came into view over the tree line, the object looked to have hit something. That is, it was similar to what a nuclear explosion might look like in space, but it did not change brightness, speed or direction. It was moving about twice as fast as the fastest satellite we could see, and directly North East in course.
The ensuing cloud or haziness around the object dissipated after only five to ten seconds or so after "impact" which was when we noticed a second object "chasing" the first. That is, it was on the same course maybe ten seconds behind.
The second object had no "impact like" event.
They both disappeared over the horizon after ten minutes or so. Neither object had any kind of tail or trail behind it, they just looked like moving stars.
No, I was not drinking.
We are dying of curiosity. What were they??
