Location: Merced, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Very bright orange stars moving down and then north, West of my location.

From my backyard, looking due West. I see two bright orange stars, 10 times brighter than the brightest star. Both are descending from 30 degrees to let's say 25 degrees altitude, due West from my perspective. Separated from each other by about two inches at arm length. Each light was horizontal to one another other. After two or so minutes descending very slowly, they changed direction due North (moving one or two feet to the right, at arm's length.) The whole event lasted 5-10 minutes, or so, before each light disappeared, one after another after a 2-3 minute interval. The event repeated itself, identically.
