As I was on my way home, travelling westbound on Rt 64 in Middlebury, I saw 2 objects in the sky last night. I thought they were planets, but they seemed really close. Both were consistent in brightness with one being about 2 or 3 magnitude brighter than the other. They were about at a 30°- 40° up from the horizon and did not seem to change position for the 30 minutes I observed them (as I was driving). I lost sight of them within 5 minutes of my home.

When I arrived home, I looked out at the western sky, which I have a very good view of, and they were not there. Odd.
