|Saw what appeared to be two satellites flying in formation, but don't believe that objects were satellites or airplanes.
On June 29, 1997, I was parked approximately 3 miles north of town on a deserted oilfield road. At the time, I was looking to the west at the Big Dipper when I noticed what appeared to be a satellite out of the corner of my eye, moving to the south. The altitude was right for a satellite. As I was about to dismiss the object as a satellite, I noticed another object trailing the first at the exact same speed, and in the same path. The distance between the two objects had to be incredible. As I watched these objects for a minute or so, the second object accelerated. At the point the second object overtook the first, both objects were lost from view due to the city lights.
