Location: Mckeesport, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:7 minutes
Red blinking light went straight up then West to South gets smaller and disappears, second light moves same as first but West to North.

I was sitting in bed at about 10:30-10:40pm. I looked over at my husband to continue our conversation when I noticed a red blinking light out the window. It was slowly moving upward. After reaching a certain altitude it stopped blinking and stayed still for about 30 seconds then it started to move and blink again as it went slowly across the sky vertically West to South. It started to get smaller then just disappeared as I was looking right at it.

As the red light disappeared I noticed a second red blinking light come out of nowhere as if it just turned itself on near the original point of the first light. I went upstairs to my daughters room to show her what I was seeing. It did the same exact thing as the first, slowly moving upward, stopping for about 30 seconds, resuming its movement laterally and blinking then as I was watching it started getting smaller and disappeared. This second light was moving in the opposite direction of the first light, it started in the West but then moved North.

I did record video of the second light from my daughters window. I was telling her about the first light I seen as we were watching and recording. The video is approximately 3 minutes long until light goes out. In the video the light appears white however to the eye it was red.

I have been living in my house for almost 10 years and never seen anything like this. It didn't move like any aircraft I see normally. I've never noticed an aircraft that moved that slowly or its lights getting smaller then disappearing.

I tried checking flights in my area at the time, but couldn't find a site that I could get the information.
