Strange lights in the morning sky

It was Sunday morning around 8:15. I was at my girlfriends house and I went outside on the balcony which is located to the west side of the house. My girlfriend is living on the 10th floor, so I have a fantastic view over the city. We had clear weather, no clouds, no fog or anything else. Visibility was around like 30 kilometers.

I was watching the sky into the west direction as I suddenly noticed one bright light in the sky, moving from west to east. The light had like an aura around. I was unable to determine how high this object was in the sky. Suddenly another light appeared to the left side of the first object and started getting brighter and brighter and it adjusted its speed by the first one. I noticed a pedestrian down on the street and I was yelling from the balcony at the person: Look at that ! Look at that up there in the sky! He looked up and saw the same as I saw. The objects now were moving together for approxematly 4 seconds as the second light suddenly made a sharp 90 degree left turn, speeded up and dimmed out. The first one was now nearly direct straight in the sky over me as it rapidly dimmed out and disappeared. At that moment I noticed that the signal from the radiostation I was listening to, interfered.

There was also an aircraft (could be a 747, 'cause of the 4 streams ) in the sky during that sight high above around 36000 ft. moving south-west. They should have seen something. I am 100% sure.
