Shape: Light
Duration:20 seconds
2 high flying objects traveling at great speeds across the night sky.

As U was standing in my back yard looking up at the night sky, I noticed a satellite coming across the night sky, and just beyond its direction of travel I saw 2 redish/orong colored lights traveling in the same direction as if they were connected bbut with a uncertian distance between them. They seem to be as high as the satellite but moving at a greater speed. So fast that even a low flying plane could not possible fly as fast given thier apparent distance from me. They were flying perpendicular to the first 2 stars of the Big Dipper. As a few seconds went by they seem to have turned 45 degrees to the left and then split another 45 degrees going in the opposite direction, and then they were out of sight.The night is clear with no clouds in the sky and the moon was in a totally different part of the night sky. Don't know what it was, but I know they were not planes or satellites and they had no apperant sounds comimg from them,not even trailing them as planes do.
