Shape: Light
Duration:10 seconds
2 stationary flashing side by side very bright white lights

While eating dinner with guests about 7:00 pm on October 20, 2017, I happened to look out our sliding glass door which faces west and noticed two stationary side by side very bright flashing white lights just above the tree line slightly northwest of the house. They were quite close together and were brighter than the planet Venus would be. The object(s) were stationary and did not wobble like a drone would.

I called the 3 other people in attendance and they all saw it. The sun had set and it was dark out. I went for some binoculars but by the time I returned, the lights had moved northish and out of view. No noise was heard.

From our house, the object(s) appeared to be over the western part of Aviation Road in Queensbury, NY.

A week later (10-27-2017), I was sharing this event with a friend and coincidently both he and his wife may have seen the same object while they were driving in their car about 7:15 pm. He reported it also as 2 stationary side by side very bright white lights but they were not flashing. Shortly thereafter, one light disappeared. They also said it was low in the sky. He’s not 100% sure what day it was but feels like it was the same Friday evening as was the one we saw. Also, no noise was heard.

His sighting was about 5 miles northeast of our sighting and located in the Sunnyside Road area of Queensbury, NY.

All parties involved are familiar with aircraft lighting and this object was definitely not lit up in a normal pattern.
