|One exceptionally large and bright light appeared, dimmed, then moved away to the south, passing an identical object heading north.
I was laying on my back on my deck listening to music and not paying particular attention to the sky when something extremely bright caught my eye through the trees overhead. Just as I got up to get a better look away from the tree, it appeared smaller and dimmer. Originally it was white and round, the size and brightness of a 1/4th sized full moon, nearly but not quite directly overhead, maybe up 75 degrees looking towards the west.
A moment later it looked like a dim star in the same spot in the sky, perhaps climbing straight up although the speed would have had to be exceptional. Then immediately after dimming the object started moving exactly due south at a consistent speed. I perceived it as being at an extremely high altitude and high rate of speed. About half a second after I realized it was moving I saw another object identical to the first in fairly close proximity coming from the south and headed the exact opposite direction right by it at the same! speed and apparent altitude as the original object. Both objects very gradually became dimmer as they moved away in opposite directions and maintained the same heading and velocity until I couldn't see either anymore.
