Location of Sighting: Stationsplein 14, 4811 BB, Netherlands
Date of Sighting: May 17, 2018
Time of Sighting: 2 AM Local Time
Description: I live in the Netherlands. Last night I was walking home with my girlfriend after a night out. At some point, we noticed two white lights right in the middle of the sky, appearing to be fixed, looking like say two Jupiters in terms of brightness and size. They were fairly close to each other and lined up diagonally. It was a beautiful sight and we froze in our tracks. I had to check out what it was so I grabbed my phone to open Google Sky Map. When the app was ready (it took a while to calibrate), we looked at the sky again, but the two lights were GONE! I mean they were nowhere to be found! We were astonished. I did some research the minute I got home and found out that an oddly similar sighting also took place in California in 2014, where two bright lights were briefly seen at night before going off (http://abc7.com/news/mysterious-lights-in-sky-spotted-in-socal/123917/). I checked out the footage, and the lights even exhibited similar brightness, position, and distance from each other. I have no idea what it was. Any help would be much appreciated!
