Sighting Details

We were outside in our pool, and there was a moderate amount of flight traffic from O'Hare Airport which is approximately ten miles away. We were watching some of the planes and then noticed what was flying like a plane, about the same speed and size, but the light it gave off was very different. It did not look like the white landing lights and green and red clearance lights of an airplane, but instead looked like something that was on fire. As the object came from the northeast toward the north, the light grew dimmer. When it was due north of us it disappeared. Approximately a minute later another object appeared which looked almost exactly the same in every way. It took the same path and grew dim at the same point as the previous object. They left no trail and made no sound. They flickered like something that was burning. The objects were probably a couple miles away.
