Two Star-like lights seen in East Sacramento

My family and I had gone to a local video store to rent some movies. There was a long check-out line, so my husband took our daughter with him on a short errand. As he left, he told me that he would pick me up outside the store after I checked out. When I got through the line, I went outside to wait for my husband. I didn't see him immediately, so I just stood, looking around as I waited. I looked up at the sky and noticed two bright star-like lights travelling upward high up over the parking lot. Each of them had a single white contrail that trailed behind them as they soared upward. I thought they were a jet at first,but I couldn't see a body around them. Then I noticed they were flying sort of "neck-and-neck" as though they were racing each other. After I had been staring up at the sky for a few moments, I could see the security guard looking up as well. I don't really know what he thought, but he appeared to be looking in the same direction as I. When my husband drove up, I told him what I saw. I told him to park in a parking space and look. Unfortunately, by then all that was visible was a jet, which was flying in a different direction. Unlike the lights, I could see the white body of the jet airplane as it flew by. By that time,the lights were gone. My husband insisted that what I saw was the jet. He said, "Anything that leaves a contrail is a jet." I just thought I'd bring this to your attention, in case someone saw something similiar.
