Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Two red circles of light growing brighter ,then slowly dim ,go out and ,then reappear.

My husband and I were driving home late heading west. I was sitting in the passenger seat and he in the driver's. As we were talking I began looking out the passenger window to the north. A bright red object high in the sky caught my eye. I continued to watch thinking it was a plane but then the light slowly started to go dim and then out. By this time my husband wondered why I was ignoring him and stopped the car. Then we were both looking out the passenger window when the light slowly reappeared and then one more a short distance from the first did the same. We started driving again and then turned heading north. The lights continued to get brighter then slowly dim and go out then reappear. We watched the two red lights until we pulled in our driveway and could not see due to the trees. Neither one of us were under the influence of alcohol or drugs. We did not try to walk around and see them through the trees, we just decided to go in and tried not to think about it.
