|In line strobe lights over Cumberland, RI
Looking to the sky around 10:45 pm I noticed 2 very bright white strobe lights flashing at the same time, with about a 1 second interval between flashes. They got my attention because they were in line with each other, not side by side as a typical aircraft would be. There were no other distiguishable lights. There was no noise heard during of after that I could attribute to the lights. The lights moved SW to NE across the sky rather quickly and then got to a point where they seemed to become stationary, and continued to flash. At that point I watched for about 45 seconds while the lights got closer together and then faded away while still blinking at what appeared to be the same rate. When I could no longer see the lights, I turned back to the direction the lights were moving from and I could make out a contrail, howver it was quite far to the side of where the lights were.
