Shape: Light
Duration: 1 minute
Summary : Two lights merge together due south then proceed rapidly to the southwest where they disappear at the horizon

I was driving home, when I looked out my left window and saw two bright white lights,at about 70 degrees in the sky and quite high. In a couple of seconds, they merged together from their side-by-side formation in a curved V-shaped movement. The resulting light moved southwest at an amazing rate,where it disappeared beneath the horizon. I'd say it moved from 70 degrees to 0 degreesin 20 seconds.
