Duration:1 minute
Sir, Tonight at exactly 7.16 p.m (I looked at the time in my cell phone which I had in my hand) while taking my usual walk in the open terrace of my house I noticed two bright 'stars' in the south-eastern sky very close to each other and positioned roughly over the Madurai airport. My vague familiarity with the night sky told me that the stars were not supposed to be there. So I took interest in them and watched them. As I watched them they grew brighter by the second and appeared as bright as the Venus - the one towards the north was slightly brighter than the other one to the south. They were static and I judged them to be at an altitude of where I normally see the shooting stars. And as I was watching them perplexed, they began to fade and in moments totally faded away leaving me totally bewildered - all in a matter of may be 30 to 40 seconds. I watched intently for several minutes at the spot where they disappeared in the hope they might reappear. But they did not. At about 7.25 p.m, a satellite passed over the exact spot where the two bright objects were - from south-east towards north-west.

I felt terribly excited for a few minutes after that. Could those Unidentified Flying (?) Objects be those of aliens'? Or, what else could they be, I wonder!
