At approximately 12.45 am on Sunday, July 18, 2010, I was on my sun-deck just before retiring. I noticed two large brightly lit orange balls in the eastern sky, one above the other, above my neighbor’s roof.
I watched them for about 15 minutes. During this time, they seemed to move closer to one another and then seemed to merge. They did not diverge. Other than that they didn’t move.
I watched them through binoculars but they didn’t look like anything I had ever seen before. They were much smaller than the moon would be in the same place but much larger than a star or planet might be, and a very different color. I had no way to determine how far away they might be.
The night seemed to be clear. There had been some sea-mist earlier in the day and before dark but that was only seen to the south. However, perhaps it is possible that the sea-mist had come up again after dark and caused some kind of unusual reflection.
