Duration: 2 seconds
No of observers: 1

Location: Brookneal, VA, USA

Shape: Flash
Characteristics: Aircraft nearby

2 flashes seem at high altitude. One then another a short distance away. Both appeared to be a high altitude.

While stargazing tonight I observed 11 satellites, 13 meteors and a high altitude formation of two military aircraft. Their course was roughly 090 as hey were likely headed to NAS Oceana.

About five minutes later I noticed a bright but small flash south of the Jets course.

A moment later, there was another flash further along suggesting the object had traversed a great distance before flashing again suggesting the that the object had moved a good distance between flashes.

I immediately thought it was odd and anticipated a third flash but it did not come. I searched with my binoculars and could not find a source. I thought perhaps they were flares from another jet perhaps associated with the formation I had just seen. But there was no lingering burn descending to earth.

I am a private pilot and well connected with DoD types as well as amature radio. By no means am I a sensationalist. However, these flashes were an oddity in all my years associated with the sky.
