Duration:An hour or 2
Two bright lights in the sky, no other stars visible and planes deviated flight path around them

Around 6:30 - 7:00pm after we ate dinner. A family friend who tends to stare up at the sky while he smokes outside called to our attention to bright lights in the cloudy sky to the south-southwest of highway 5 and 380 in the general direction of Dallas. One was very bright and was accompanied by a lesser shining light above and to the left of it like (\) this. They both shined white and were the ONLY things visible in the sky. It was too cloudy and too bright out for any stars to be seen. They kept falling out of our view due to passing clouds but did not move in the sky and did not have any tails or trails.

Another important note of this is that the flight path of commercial planes coming down toward DFW airport was smack right in the middle of the two lights. Several planes took the standard flight path but after a while the planes DEVIATED their flight paths to the west of the lights and avoided them completely.

Tonight we stood outside and looked for anything. The stars have been visible but we DID NOT see anything near where we saw the two lights and the planes that regularly pass are back on the normal flight path. (We saw 4 or 5 planes go straight through the area where they had been flying between the lights yesterday night so we k now that must be their standard flight path.) Several other people including some other friends and family saw it as well and acknowledged that the lights seemed strange seeing as there were no visible stars yesterday (Nov.27) where we were.
