UFO Spotted over the New York State Thruway !!

Working in New Paltz today..left the job at 7pm....travelling north on the Thruway...while approaching EXIT 21, Catskill exit (around 8pm)..I saw 2 bright lights, close enough to each other to look like they were connected, hovering in the sky ! Altitude of no more than 300 ft..just off the the Thruway heading north to the left hand side which would be east..adjacent to a construction area where the speed limit drops to 55 mph..

I was stationed at Otis AFB for a year and I know this wasn´t a plane or blinking lights, just 2 very bright lights almost touching each other hovering in the sky...
