Around 6pm, I observed two very bright "stars," which I assumed were planets because they were so bright in the sky in front of my house. The sun was just setting and no other stars were visible.The "stars" were next to each other, very close together and I thought it was very odd for two planets to be in such perfect alignment and so close together.
They were not moving for several minutes, but thenbegan to move away from each other so slowly it was almost imperceptible. One went northwest and one went southeast. They were moving far more slowly than any plane I've ever seen.
After a minute or two they just blinked off, as though someone flupped a light switch and nothing could be seen.
Less than an hour later I saw another bright, unmoving light in the sky, behind my house this time. It looked identical to the first but lower in the sky. It was still for about two minutes then it dimmed. It was still visible but smaller and not ! as bright, like a regular star instead of a planet. It then begam to move, faster than the first two but still slower than a plane. Then it turmed red and started to blink, still moving. I watched it for a minute then it just turned off just like the first two.
I dont know what background info about me you would like, but I am a 35 year old white female, with a BSN in nursing. I was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol.
