TWO RED-ORANGE LIGHTS IN "FORMATION" OVER ANN ARBOR, MI.

I've seen things like this before , but never there. My Cousin and I were fishing on the Huron river and I was admiring the evening sky. I saw what I thought to be a satelite, very dim,red-orange, moving slowly at high altitude, almost exactly from west to east. Aprox. two seconds after I first noticed "the satelite", another appeared next to the first. The second one was the same color as the first, only slightly dimmer. Almost as soon as the second object appeared, it encircled the first, one time in a counter-clockwise direction, and then the two objects split up. The first, having changed it's course only slightly, continued in an easterly direction. The second bolted south and disappeared. The two objects seemed to be at their brightest when they first appeared toghether, then got dimmer from then. I watched the first object moving east, until it was too dim to see. This whole event took less than five or six seconds, so my Cousin didn't get a chance to look up in time. However, we both noticed five aircraft, also at pretty high altitude,(too high up to hear), flying fairly close together, following the same flight path the first object took. When I say fairly close, I don't mean in formation, but they were too close to be commercial aircraft. The aircraft flew by about one minute after i lost sight of the first object.(following perhaps?)
