|High altitude light that faded into two small points of light, slowly moving in tandem to the south.
I was up late watching the Perceids meteor shower with my main view towards the North East. It was a beautiful, clear night with no moon. Jupiter was hanging high over head and slightly to the south at this hour. There were several nice meteors, two brilliant ones of note, but the rest were just tiny little streaks. I was getting a little bit bored with looking at the same section of sky so I looked back over towards the South. I could see Jupiter shining through the fabric of the sunshade but off to the side of the shade and directly overhead, I noticed a bright, smaller, pale, bluish, white light. I was confused since I knew it wasn't another planet and I hadn't remembered seeing a star that was that bright.
As pondered this anomaly, it just slowly faded out. While my eyes adjusted tracking around it's position, I then got this bizarre motion sensation which really bugged me out since I was sitting stationary. I realized then that it wasn't me that! was moving, it was a tiny light that my eye had fixed upon, it was no brighter than the background stars, and it was moving slowly towards the South.
That's when I noticed it wasn't alone. There were two distinct, small points of light moving perfectly in unison together with one ahead of the other at a slight angle from my perspective, there was a decent gap between the two, about an inch and a half to two inches if you measured between two fingers of an outstretched hand. A jet flying at a high altitude with it's standard running lights flashing also happened to fly overhead a moment later, but towards the East at a completely perpendicular angle to the lights. I don't think the jet's appearance was related, as I could tell it (the jet) was much, much closer that the lights. What ever I was seeing had to be at an extremely high altitude, possibly in orbit or possibly in outer space. I honestly don't know what I saw tonight but it just gave me the chills. I thought, maybe it was two objects at first, but then I wondered, what! if it w as just one, extremely long object that was dimly illuminated at either end? I've seen a few weird things in my life, but nothing like this.
Please don't think I'm crazy, I'm usually pretty skeptical about these things, but to actually see it with my own eyes...
I don't know what else to say. I can only hope that maybe there is some rational explanation for what I've just seen.
