Two flashing lights move together same direction and speed and then vanish

I wanted to report a possible UFO sighting. I had seen an exact same sighting just a few years ago. This one has the exact same flashing, floating, vanishing lights. The following is what happened tonight at about 9:10 p.m. May 17, 2016.

I heard a bunch of sirens outside my apartment, so I looked out to see what was going on and what direction they were going in. I live in a pretty big city and a bad section where there’s always something going on. I thought I had heard a car chase so that was what had me curious. It was twilight and the sky was that beautiful mix of colors -of dark blue, light blue, green, yellow, and then pink and red. I saw two lights in the far distance rising up into the sky. I could tell immediately that they were odd by the way they were moving and the way they looked. They were floating at two different spots. Blinking on and off. Red all the time and the white was flashing. I could tell they were on the horizon but not as far away as stars would be. They were not planes. They made no noise. They flashed on and off, moving at the exact same speed and in the same direction as the other. Then they simply faded, disappeared, vanished before my eyes. Just like the ones in 2013. I could not tell the shape. All I saw was two lights moving and flashing at the same speed, vanished at the same time. (I think it was 2013 when I went to Westcott Beach/Henderson Harbor/Sackett’s Harbor in New York State. We were camping and I saw a whole bunch of them floating across the sky. They vanished before my eyes.) It gave me a chilly, startling feeling. I see airplanes all the time since I live in a highrise and there’s an airport across the city. These were NO airplanes.
