I am an amateur astronomer for 50 years, and was setting up to take a photo in the northern sky when I noticed 2 bright lights, magnitude ~0 to 1, approximately 0.3 degrees apart about 60 degrees altitude in the northeast sky. They were in a place with no bright stars and were immobile on observation for ~20 seconds. After that, one faded to dark, then the other faded about 5 seconds after the first.
