Duration: 1 minute
No of observers: 2

Location: Hamburg, NY, USA

Shape: Light

Two bright white lights, one following the other, seen in night sky for about a minute.

Two bright white lights (at least as bright as Venus) were noted immediately in the north sky, over his house, by the first witness when he went out to walk the dog. Initially the bright lights were the same size and brightness. One light followed the other in a fairly straight line to the right.

The first witness called his wife outside and she saw the two bright lights, one still following the other to the right. By the time the second witness saw the lights, the left light, following the other one, had faded in brightness, but the leading light was still bright. The left light faded away gradually, then the right light, still bright, faded away fairly suddenly.

The first witness said that the entire episode lasted 45 seconds to one minute. The second witness saw the final fifteen to twenty seconds of the episode.
