Two bright lights sit in sky at strange position then disappear, Arnold, MO.

It was about 7:15pm Wed Oct 18th. I picked my daughter up from work and we were headed back to our house. Our neighborhood is in a pretty populated area of town. Our street is dark though, it's a small road leading into our neighborhood and it sits up high on a hill overlooking the rest of the town.

I turned left into the subdivision we can see down a large hill and lots of sky. It is a great spot, very open and expansive. The reason I explain all of this is to show that I have a great view of alot of sky at this vantage point. It was very dark at this time, no moon there is airplane and helicopter traffic out in the distance, that is normal so I didn't at first think to much of it.

But what caught my eye that made me stop in the middle of the street was two round very super bright lights in the sky to my left. They were just sitting there at a strange angle. Not a normal angle though, not a star or plane, they two were completely stationary. My daughter is 17, I said don't those lights look super odd. She agreed and added that it almost looked like there was a circle around them. I am now kicking myself for not grabbing my phone, we both were almost frozen looking at these lights.

I scanned the sky nothing was moving around it. Then all of a sudden the best way I can describe this is the two anglular lights moved away from us. Like they slowly disappeared into the sky. As to explain like it took off slowly but was enveloped by the sky. It did not go left or right or at any angle but forward into the dark. I hope I have described what I saw well. Was it quick? but felt like an eternity. We both were screaming how it was disappearing. Then it was gone. We sat there for another minute and I looked all over the sky, but didn't see anything else. I will never forget it!

Thank you for letting me share. Also the circle part I referred too was very very light could not make out that well.
