2 bright flashes that move away from earth

We were out on the deck about 10 pm when I looked up and saw a bright flash. I asked my sister if she saw it too. We watched it begin to ascend and move northward in a straight pattern. It was moving away from the earth. We thought it could be a satellite, but another flash occured and began moving away from the earth right after the first one disappeared. We then noticed a satellite flying by, and knew at that point it wasn't a satellite. Definetly not a plane, either.
