Location: Abilene, TX
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
On 5/11/2017 South side of Abilene, Texas, after a pretty heavy storm between midnight and 1 am, I was driving south out of my apartments and noticed 2 dark yellow, amber colored, what I thought to be stars, and stopped to look at them and they began traveling north they may have been already but I noticed they were moving towards me (north at an incredible rate of speed, I am a licensed A&P mechanic, and my father is retired air force and a lead inspector for ((name deleted)) Airline, and I have never seen an aircraft with one light very small like a star, but a dark yellow orange color no strobe or any other lights,

I tried to take video, and was unable due to how small the lights were and how fast they were going I heard no sound before, as, or after they passed but they were low enough for clouds to obstruct them at one point. One had a 2 second lead or so on the other they were kind of side by side but one following.

I am very close to Dyess AFB, which is to the west, but they did not veer left of go west just North and I lost sight within a minute the whole event lasted less than 2 minutes starting when they were out in front of me to the south and high and far enough to look like strange colored stars. I would say closer to 1 minute for the event, that fast, no sound???
