Location: Madera, CA
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|Two lights in the sky,one seemed to follow the other as if in formation.
I arrived at work this morning and saw two lights moving in the sky. It was still dark but the sun was starting to come up from behind the mountains to the east. The lights were in the west south west sky when I spotted them and moved to the east north east,they moved almost directly overhead.
When I saw them I told another guy who just got out of his car to look and as we were watching,two more people got there and I pointed the lights out to them also. The lights almost looked connected as the brighter one seemed to lead the dimmer one. The two moved as if in formation but not like aircraft in that the dimmer light was directly behind the other. The light was white in color and there were no blinking lights like would be on an aircraft and I know aircraft don't follow directly behind one another.
I would estimate the speed at between 200 to 400 miles per hour. I estimate the altitude at between 8,000 to 15,000 feet. It would seem that they were about 500 to 800 feet apart. There was no noise heard from the objects.
