|2 bright lights in northern sky on a right to left angle approx. 40 deg.
traveling North on I 71 at mile marker 75 myself and a trucker behind us were on our usual run. We always look at the sky and note the constalations and locations of planets and, this morning, commenting on the "bust" of a meteor shower and were hoping to see remenants. In a moment of silence on the CB radio, I was looking at the night sky with no cloud cover, I scanned from the west to the east when at about 11 o'clock from my vantage point there were two "stars" very bright and very close together at at right to left angle. These "stars" were so bright I thought I had lost my bearing and was seeing double on a planet. Just then, the other driver said, "Do you see what I see ahead?" I said, "Yeah, they were never there before" We both were watching them and these very intense lights began to fade. This was weird because unlike a light bulb going out they faded slowly for a good 5 to 6 seconds into the darkness. There was no movement and no clouds to dissapear into if this were a plane. We talked among ourselves and concluded, based on the landing lights of aircraft in the area that these lights were far too bright, too far apart and too motionless to be that of conventional aircraft. We both decided that I should report this to you. Thank you.
