|2 slow moving lights in formation over Orland Park, IL
2 Bright lights in the SW sky at aprox 20 and 25 degrees vertical and 220 and 225 degrees around the compass respectively. These appeared to be landing lights from jets at first, but I didn't seem them moving for a while so I thought perhaps they were planets. However, no stars were visible.
After watching a few jets pass by the area, it was apparent that these objects were not jets. I focused on these objects for about 10 minutes as they tracked simultaneously across the sky down and to the west. In about 10 minutes, I would estimate they moved no more than 5 degrees. Faster than stars move, but much slower than planes.
They appeared to be quite far apart but they moved in exactly the same direction and distance in that time. I kept my head fixed against my car seat and used various fixed objects nearby to gauge the motion.
I took a number of photos but they resolve as dots even at high resolution.
