I was standing out in front of the apartments. I was just looking up into the sky. I looked up and it appeared Venus and Mars were close together in the sky. The two objects were stationary and did not flicker like a star would as viewed through the atmosphere. I was just standing there looking up into the sky and enjoying the nice breeze. A neighbor was sitting in a chair by his apartment and said hello to me. I looked over and said hello and asked how he was doing. I looked back like 35-45 secs later at the sky and both objects had disappeared. I scanned the sky and they were no where to be seen and it was a clear night with no clouds and the area they were in was in the middle of the sky with nothing near them. I continued to look but they were not there anymore.
