|I glanced skyward and saw an object moving extremely quickly across the night sky. It appeared as two points of light, seperated but traveling uniformly. The object materialized, traveled very quickly on a straight path, then disappeared. I confess that the object was quite faint.
The object was two points of light, seperated by just a degree or so. The lights appeared white in color and kept a constant level of brightness. The two points of light were obviously traveling as one unit as they moved across the night sky. I just happened to look upward to admire the night sky when I left a restuaraunt and noticed the object moving on a southeast to northwest path. Within 5 seconds, the object vanished as quickly as it appeared. The object never came near the horizon. I recently graduated from college with a degree in Sociology. I took an Astronomy class in college and consider it somewhat of a hobby of mine. I have seen countless shooting stars and this object was very different from anything I had seen in the night sky before. It traveled way too quickly to be a jet and there was no actual "streak" as is commonly observed with meteors. The intensity of the lights remained constant until it disappeared.
