I was walking to the bar to meet some friends and I noticed to bright star-like objects. At first I thought the lights were stars but then I could see other stars in the sky and they were not as bright and big. As I waited outside the bar I noticed that the two points of light had moved slightly to the right. To make sure I planted my back to a tree and used a distant tree branch as a reference point, and the straight edge of my lighter as a guide. I walk away and waited for my friends-about 5 minutes. I walked back to the tree, planted myself in the same place and noticed that the lights were not in the same place. Each light had moved as if they were connected, although I couldn't see any structure connecting them. Ten minutes later I returned to the same spot and the lights were noticably moved away from my intial reference point. The streets were mostly empty as most of the people have left town for the holidays. I also noticed a red blinking dot, like a helicopter flying in the area of the lights. My friends pulled up and I showed them the lights and they stared for a while but the lights were fixed and outside of there brightness there was nothing spectacular to them-I'm sure. One hour or so later we returned to the bar and the lights were gone. I usually stare at the sky and I have noticed how with time stars change positions in the sky. Specifically I have observed the constallation Orion change position on many evenings. The difference is that it usually takes hours for this to happen. These object were moving very slow, but to fast for stars-due to the Earth moving. Another thing is that while I was staring at this thing I felt like something was communicating with me (this sounds nuts, I know). As my friends husband looked at it I noticed that he was also grabbed by something, almost in a hypnotic state for a brief moment. On the somewhat empty street, earlier, for some reason, I found I couldn't stop looking at it.((NUFORC Note: Given the long duration of the event, we suspect that the witness may have been observing the two planets, Venus and Jupiter, which currently are quite prominent in the southwestern sky, at the time of night indicated by the witness. PD))
