Shape: Light
Duration:4-5 minutes
Two orange lights slowly move across the sky.

My girlfriend and I were just backing out of the driveway, when she spotted a bright orange light in the sky. I got out of the car and filmed some of the event with my phone's camera.

We watched as it lazily moved across the sky, in a slow arc from low on the southwest horizon in a northerly direction towards the center of the sky. It slowed down and seemed to stop moving as it approached the center of the sky, at least from our perspective.

I thought maybe it was a satellite, like the International Space Station (due to its brightness). Having seen the ISS on several occations, I can say it was similar in apparent size and brightness, although the object we saw was definitely not the ISS. It was too slow, it moved in a curve, it was a fiery orange color, and it was flickering like a bright star.

As it started to dim, another one appeared where the first had started. The first one faded, then brightened for an instant, then disappeared. The other one followed suit, fading, brightening, then disappearing. It seemed to follow the same flight path as the first. No other obects were sighted.
