Bright golden light seen twice on the same road to home.

Coming home from school at 8pm (20:00), from Cedar Falls to Stout, my father and I saw a bright golden light out in the country side road on the way home. The light was, by my guess, 4 or 5 miles away. The light was too high above the trees and houses to be a light on a pole or a decoration.

Since we were in the car, it’s hard to tell whether or not the light moved as well. There were no other lights with or on the light to define it as an airplane. The road we took was long, 5 miles or so. From turning onto that road to the end of the road, the light went from bright to dim to finally gone.

Also, the night sky was full of clouds, there were no star light nor moon to be seen.

One more thing: My father and I have seen this light twice. On 12/28/2011 at 5pm (17:00) and 12/29/2011 at 8pm (20:00). Both on the same road in the exact same area.

The second time we saw this, I tried taking a picture with my cell, but the footage made it show two very dim lights. I’m not sure if there were two lights. From the naked eye, I only saw one.
