A faint point of light was gradually moving along high up in the night sky; the light was moving from south to north, nearly overhead of my position; the sky was clear. After it passed over me, it faded from view. Then, a few seconds later, after I shifted my stance to get a better view over the roof of my house, I saw a much brighter light somewhat to the side of where the aforementioned one faded; the brighter light was about as bright as Jupiter and gradually moving north. There were no sounds or navigations lights emanating from any of the aforementioned lights.
