I just returned home from a trip to the park with our dog. next time to take out the trash. walking out my back door and heading across my rear yard with the trash can, i looked at the evening sky which was quite clear and starry. i noticed along the horizon 5 stars in alignment, dont recall ever seeing such. the stars were spaced as such . . . . . stars 3&4 were closer together and they seemed like the stars one woukd notice as a pair, like tge 3 stars of orions belt. anyway. i stopped and wondered why i had not seen them before. as i gazed at them...Those 2 stars dimmed and went dark/off? stars 1 2 and 5 remained. the other 2 did not return, i waited wondering...Cloud? but the sky was clear. i had to move along and get the trash out and it was cold. but i came back to the same spot and waited to see if they might return. nope. odd i thought. ufo? not sure if they were flying, or did i see the death of the teun stars? thought i should report this in case others do too.
