Appeared At First Like An Airplane, But Was Defintely Not!

This morning, at around 12:15 AM, I stepped outside for a smoke. Looking up, straight in front of me, facing north, I could see two red lights, side by side similar to the lights on an airplane. However, the lights while they were red were dim and more of a reddish brown, no other lights flashing or otherwise were spotted. The lights moved very uniform and very much in sync, flying south.

As the lights started to turn towards the east, at about ten seconds after initial sighting, the lights spread out far apart, again very much in uniform, flying very aerodynamic just like an airplane. The lights continued to turn back towards the north, completing a ‘U’ shape trajectory, and the lights moved back towards each other in their original position, next to each other. The lights moved consistently, never stopping and moved fast. The total duration of the sighting was about 30 seconds.
