Location: Oneonta, NY
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Two lights traveling at a high rate of speed

I am a frequent night observer of planes, etc in the sky. I have never seen anyting like this in the past but I cant say for sure that it was one single object. I was looking at the sky (South, South East) at approximately 8:56 pm EST when I saw two rapidly pulsating lights just appear - approximately 3 inches apart in the sky. These lights were pulsating in a sequence of 3 rapid bursts, a slight pause, and then 3 more rapid bursts. Most air craft are displaying a regular and consistant blinking of the light.

The intersting part of this is that the lights maintained the exact same distance apart (from my perspective) during the entire time they traveled thru my field of vision ( my field of vision was quite large ). The speed at which they were traveling seemed much faster than the average air craft. If, in fact this was one object traveling thru the sky, it must have been moving at an increadable rate of speed and must have been extremely large.
