|Unusual bright lights moving high in the night sky
Walking out of my mother's house last night, I casually looked into the sky and noticed a "star" that was just fading into visibility and moving north. This was not a meteor, as the light appeared constant and controlled. I pointed it out to my girlfriend but she couldn't track it before it faded out. Curiosity had me scanning the sky at this point.
Within a minute, a brighter light caught my attention near the treetops, due north. She saw this one. It was a pure, bright, white light. More intense than any star or planet currently visible. We watched as it appeared to rise from its position and move across the sky towards SE, only not in a straight trajectory. The Baton Rouge airport is tens of miles west of my house, and an airplane (at or near cruising altitude) was also apparent, serving as a means of comparison. Seeing that the light was not fading, I quickly went back to the door of the house to get another witness. The man saw it, and wondered out loud what it could be.
