Top of a mountain pass, saw two lights in the sky

At around 2:00 am on 8/31/2014, my friend and I were driving to the top of a mountain pass near where I live. We were just listening to some music and eating food at one of the parking areas at the top of the pass.

We begin to look at the sky and take in the sights. I notice one normal luminosity point of light that looked like it was a satellite orbiting Earth, but then it began to move in a curved manner not consistent with orbiting satellites. The object appeared to get significantly brighter at the same time.

I couldn't quite believe what I was seeing, but also couldn't get the words out to my friend to ask if she was seeing the same thing. Luckily, I didn't have to. I heard her exclaim, "Is that getting brighter?" and then I knew I wasn't imagining it.

The brightness increase put it above every other star in the sky, even more luminous than a full moon, but the apparent physical size was smaller.

The object then decreased in luminosity, before fo! llowing another odd curved path and disappearing.

This happened again almost immediately afterward in the same way, in the same spot.
