|Two lights dropping vertically in unison; flash of red from top light
My husband and I live in So San Jose and were watching a movie on the computer. Through the window facing west at about 45 degrees in the sky, we saw two bright white lights vertically aligned and moving in unison, from our distant view the lights were about 1" apart.
The top light got brighter and changed colors to an amber red for second. These lights were seen west of San Jose, towards the Pennisula and the Bay. We see many planes and helicopters in this area so we know how they appear in the sky; these lights were much more brilliant - both were as bright as a rising Venus at certain times of the year. I could not detect any sound.
As they dropped below our sight, they kept the same vertical alignment, same distance apart, and moved at the same rate of speech. It was as if an invisible string was attaching the lower light. What is this? My husband thinks it was helicopter. I am not sure.
