twin orbs cross the entire sky at high altitude in a matter fo seconds (not meterorites)

Early Sunday mornning, I go out to see the leonid meteor shower, and I see several meteors at a time. Some crossing each other. The sky is dark. There are no clouds. We have few streelights in my neighborhood, and watching these showers has been a hobby of mine since I was in the Naval weather service. I know what satellites look like. I know what weather balloons look like. I know what jets look like. I spend a lot of time star gazing. I know altitudes from my weather days estimating cloud height. With all that in mind, I see from north to south at a REALLY high altitude (These are at the level of cirrus clouds, maybe higher) these two faintly glowing orbs side by side cross the sky at incredible speed (no port or starboard lights, just a faint orangy glow, totally different looking from meterorites). I can see them cross from when they enter my view at the peak of my roof to near the horizon in a matter of about five seconds. My eyes are totally accustomed to the dark. I have never seen anything like these before. I would love to know if anyone else saw them. Everyone keeps trying to tell me they were meteorites, and I know they weren't. They kept a steady speed, remained in a side by side formation and were a different color than the meteorites.
