Shape: Light
Duration:20 minutes
2 exteremly bright orange lights in eastern sky south of Washington, MO. in a diagonal line.

Driving in the country between New Haven and Washington, we saw 2 very bright orange lights. We were on a hill driving east when we saw them on the eastern Horizon well above tree's. Them seemed to be a bit south of the city of Washington. One was lower than the other and the other was up and to the right (Diagonal) from the lower one. We stopped in the road (no cars nearby) and stared for 30 seconds or so. Before Continuing on.

We decided to drive down the road and caught a glimpse of them still shining very brightly in the same location. At this point we are driving north and they are still east of us. We then entered a wooded area and couldn't see for about 2 minutes. We then parked in a field with a empty gravel road and saw that there was only 1 light remaining. We then see to to north east another bright orange light. We assumed one of the lights must of relocated. It then dimmed and disappeared once again. The one that stayed in position then dimmed and disappeared before reappearing 5 seconds later.

After watching the lone light for a while we decided to leave to go back to where we originally saw it. Once we returned there, there was still only the single light. The second one never returned. We then decided to go home.

I did check flight map radars to see if helicopter's / planes were in the area. There weren't. We know for a fact that it wasn't towers/light posts or something because we drive the road every day/night multiple times. Also it was clearly in the sky. Never really believed sightings until I saw them tonight.
