Saw two high-flying reddish balls

It was a few minutes before five in the morning. I stepped outside and looked up as the sky was clear and dark, not semi-cloudy as usual. I was looking at the constellations when I noticed a moving light coming from the north, and it stayed in my sight as it continued in a straight line at a high altitude across the heavens and gradually disappeared from view, toward the south.

I immediately thought it was a satellite, as I had seen one at that time of day several years ago, and reported it. But then while I was thinking about that, another one came right behind it, following the same path. No sound. The size appeared like a planet, maybe, and the warm color seemed more glowing than flashing. There were also a couple of meteorites, which appeared white and fell downward and disappeared. All that in the space of under five minutes. Then I got tired of having my neck bent backward looking up, so I went in the house.
