We observed two bright, white, star-like objects that faded out during a camping trip. this happened at the southern end of clark dry lake off rockhouse canyon road due west of borrego springs. the sighting took place in the southern sky near sirius around 8pm. precisely, sirius was equidistant from the two objects and orion. i enjoy camping and teaching people astronomy. my fiance wanted to show off her astronomy knowledge by pointing out orion and sirius. she pointed to the left of sirius and asked "what are those stars?" i said "i don't know, i'll get out my phone to look at my nightsky app." i was just looking at sirius and orion a few minutes earlier, and i didn't see anything. she noted how bright they were, the word she used was "piercing". i said "yes, they are definitely too bright to be stars, keep watching them". i was fumbling for my phone and she yelled "one just disappeared!" i stopped fumbling for my phone and wanted to witness this for myself. about 6 seconds later, the second object "faded out". it looked like a star trek "beam me up" type of fade away. this was about my 5 or 6th ufo experience. it was my fiance's first. her life is changed. she is afraid of ufos, and she didn't want to see them.
