Shape: Light
Duration:45-50 seconds
Two bright, motionless lights in Tulsa's northern sky.

While looking due north, what seemed to be a faint star appeared. The single “star” remained faint for about ten seconds, then quickly grew in brightness. At maximum brightness, which was maintained for no more than 15 seconds and was as bright or brighter than Venus on a clear night, a second faint “star” appeared at about twenty degrees higher in the sky. The first “star” faded and disappeared completely within five seconds. Then, the second “star” grew in brightness, just as the first “star” did. This brightness was also maintained for no more than fifteen seconds. Just as the first did, the second “star” faded and disappeared completely within five seconds.

Both objects remained motionless in the sky. As far as I was able to determine, there were no clouds in the sky as I could see stars all around, fully formed constellations, and even the “north star”.
