Dimly-lit objects seen racing over north carolina sky

Clear, star-filled sky. Was outside in the driveway smoking a cig, looking at Orion. I observed two oval/rice-shaped objects moving at a high speed, south to north, in a straight and parallel formation.

One of the objects accelerated a short distace ahead, and the other caught up immediately. When the second object "caught-up" with the other, the first again accelerated to what would appear to be the same distance ahead of the other. The second object again "caught-up" to the first. Both flight-paths were side-by-side and looked almost like they were on "rails". This was all within a few short seconds and both objects were moving continuously fast the whole time. Faster than a jet seen from the NE sky shortly thereafter. They were last seen leaving over the northern horizon.

Both objects were identical and had well-defined edges. Silvery and white. Not brilliant, almost "dim" They had defined edges were to "perfect" to be a shooting star. The intensity of the lights never changed.
