Myself and six others witnessed an object with orange lights in the front and back. It flew slowly and silently across the night sky over Washington or Hillsborough (not from NH). Cell phone pic included.

We were in Washington,NH approximately 10 miles up Lempster Mountain. We were sitting out on the deck, it was after 9 pm. There were no outside lights on(only the inside kitchen light and 2 tea lights on our tables). We were talking about how clear and quiet it is up there(not from NH), no street lights, no traffic, no neighbors close by (city vs country)and how great the stars looked. So we were talking and watching the sky to see if one of us (4 of us at this time) could see a shooting star. One of us noticed an orange/red orb in the southeast sky. We all watched, thought it might be a meteor, but it didn't seem to be moving. Then after several seconds we realized it was moving. It was heading North and as came within a more easterly view we could see that there were 2 orange/red lights. The front light was bigger and seemed more luminous than the smaller light in the back (both were very bright). The lights were connected by a dull dark shape (unknown)in the middle. We called 3 other people out of the house to see this, now there are 7 of us watching these lights flying slowly and silently across the sky (high up and never changed altitude). Before the lights were out of our view (behind the tree line) I took 1 picture (sending this picture)on my cell phone (not a smartphone). The whole viewing probably lasted about 3-5 minutes.
