I went out in my front yard to check for the big dipper, when something got my eye to the east right over the tree top across the street from my home. As I watched two bright orange colored lights like the color of fire suddenly blinked on. I watched for 3 or 4 seconds. Then the light went off. I thought it looked like the afterburner of a jet, but there was no noise and it seems so close. I watch for awhile but there was nothing else.
