Pair of lights, travelling East to West at extreme velocities

2 lights, side-by-side, perhaps with a dark object between them flew directly overhead at extreme speeds, basically going from horizon to horizon in about 10 seconds ( I only noticed it after it was about 45 degrees above the Eastern horizon). There were no sounds, but the object(s) had to either be extremely large or close to the earth, as they were much larger than the running lights of several airplanes that were overhead at different altitudes around the same time. I thought at first it could be the space station or shuttle, or, maybe a sattelite, but realized it was travelling East to West. The lights never blinked or changed intensity, And I think they actually jumped a bit to theNorth as they approached the Western horizon.
