2 large bright red lights flying as one object.

On this day 1/29/16, slightly after midnight, I live in a small town called Tres Piedras,and was looking towards the town of Taos, NM, which is 27 miles away. I saw 2 large bright red lights that were at least a football field apart, from my point of view.

They behaved as if it was one object ,even though they were very far apart, and appeared to be flying like a glider circulating around Taos mountain. It eventually after about 10min disappeared into some clouds in the eastern sky. There were no sharp angle turns, or high speed takeoffs, it just drifted into clouds. The only reason this caught my attention was because of its size.

I also know that military craft fly red lights only. Whatever this was, it had to be huge. I was almost 30 miles away,and if I held a dime up,that would have been the distance between the 2 lights. I'm certainly most curious if any other reports came in.

It's been several years since my last report, and I only report if its something that I can't explain.

Thanks Peter, and everyone involved processing the mountains of reports you receive.
