"Stars" moving together over Anchorage

I was outside on the upper deck of my friend's house in south anchorage with a couple other people as well, and I was just kinda laying in a hammock watching the sky when I noticed something odd. Two lights that looked exactly like stars started moving down the sky past the other stars. One "star" seemed to be leading the other, and they made a fairly sharp turn together before disappearing in about 15 secs or so. I was the only one who saw this. About 5 min later, I saw a single "star" make its way straight down the sky, making a couple slight changes in direction along the way.

This also lasted about 15 sec and one of my friends saw most of this. I never saw anything else that night but I was especially puzzled about the first sighting, since one light seemed to be following the other. As they made their sharpest turn it was almost like they were on a race track and one was swerving around the corner to keep up with the other. These 2 lights never went far from eachother. If you're in Anchorage, keep watching the skies. I was surprised I got a second sighting after the first, perhaps this may be seen again.
