|Observed two steady red lights for about one minute that moved slowly and faded out
On April 20 coming home from work at 8:45 pm I noticed through the windshield two red lights in the southwest sky at about a 50 degree elevation that seemed to be slowly moving. They were the color and size of what you'd see on a nearby radio tower but not flashing- steady and slowly moving to the south away from town. I would say they were quite far away. One was brighter. As soon as I could I pulled over to take a picture with my iPhone but by the time I could get out of the truck only one was still visible and it slowly drifted away and dimmed to nothing. I didn't get any picture. The sky was clear with stars visible. It was dark. No other aircraft around. This wasn't a satellite. It was moving too slow for that.
