Two bright Venus-like lights hang in sky, then dim at the same time until they disappear.

Our power was out so we went to eat dinner on our porch outside facing South. I look at the stars and moon a lot, I think they are lovely. I know there is only one very bright “star” at night I usually see – Venus. Once in a while, I know Mars gets close, but it is never as bright and a slightly different color.

We were talking and I looked up and said, “How strange. It looks like there are two of Venus tonight…” My husband looked and we watched for a minute thinking that really they were exactly the same size and close and quite larger than even Venus really ever looks. Never moving, not changing in size at all, not a satellite, not a plane, very bright. Too high in the sky to be anything else.

We stared for a coupled of minutes and then they both suddenly started to sim until they disappeared at exactly the same time. We looked at each other and thought what in the world just happened.
