Bright lights in sky over West Seattle

I was sitting on the deck with my husband talking just after midnight last night, we were talking and sitting across from each other, and I was looking up at the sky. All of a sudden I saw a a really bright light in the southwest sky (about an aspirin at arms length), It lasted about 3 seconds and started to fade and then disappear. It brightened as it was heading in the northeast direction but then faded into the northwest sky, almost U-shaped. I told my husband to check it out but he only caught the fading, so he told me to make a wish, and I did, but I grew up in Montana so I've seen my fare share of shooting stars.

About a minute passes, and I'm talking about how weird it looked and my husbands now looking up at the sky with me, and another one in the exact same spot going in the same direction. A small bright light that looks like it was shining down getting bigger and then it gets smaller and disappears.

My husband suggested an airplane turning, we see aircraft all the time here, but it was too high up there and we didn't see a trail. It wasn't a meteor or shooting star. And it was weird that it appeared twice in the same spot, going in the same direction. Just can't explain it.
