|Two star-looking lights moving very slowly to the western horizon.
As I gazed to the western skyline to observe Venus, around 10:39 p.m. MST, I noticed two stars that I have not noticed on other evenings. Upon further observation, I noticed that they were very slowly heading to the western horizon.
One light was approximately five degrees higher, and to the northwest, than the other light. The distance between the two lights were about the size of a human fist, with the arm fully extended.
I have observed Japanese Lanterns once on New Year’s Eve and logically assumed that was the answer. I am not ruling out the possibility of Lanterns, but when I observed Lanterns before, they slowly burned out and simply disappeared. These however must had been creating light for quite some time, before I noticed them, to reach the altitude that I recognized them to be.
Furthermore, when I went back inside to check my photos, they were still just as ambient as they were when I had first noticed both 15 minutes earlier. The tree lines began to obstruct my viewing, and that is when I checked my photos.
