Location: Easton, MA
Shape: Light
Duration:4-6sec.
bright , very fast moving/stopping white lights in upper night sky

I arrived in Easton, MA. (on 4/8/11, 3:15 am.) at a trailer yard my work has there. I drive tractor trailer and was there to pick up a trailer and return to Springfield,Ma. I began to pre-trip inspect the trailer, when I got to the back door area I had to pee, it is a wooded, fairly remote location.As I was standing there I looked into the sky and thought about how clear and crisp the night sky was. Movement drew my attention to the south east. I observed two white lights, very high up, moving at incredible speed. I immediately focused in on the first star I saw next to them to try an tell if I was really seeing them move or it was my eyes tricking me, and they were obviously moving very fast. I would say they were about the size and brightness of a very small star. There was no noise at all, but with the sheer altitude they were at, I'm not sure if I would have expected to hear anything anyway.They were about two inches apart from each other (from my perspective on the ground),and traveled about seven inches( again ,my perspective)in a south westerly direction. They came to a sudden stop. Sat in place for a moment, then one light faded away, the other flashed brightly, then disappeared.The whole event lasted maybe five seconds. I have lived in Cocoa Beach , Fl., for many years, and with Nasa, and a busy Patrick Air Force base in town I've seen every type of aircraft I can think of, and this was like nothing I have ever witnessed. I was, and still am pretty shaken afterward. I am not sure what to believe anymore. I have never been a 'skeptic' per say, but never really believed in "u.f.o. stories" either. I do know that what I saw was very real and quite possibly a life changing moment for me....
