Two white lights moving together over San Francisco

I was laying in my back yard and looking up at the sky, which was completely clear. I saw a round, shiny object that appeared to up very high in the sky, too high for a plane. It was basically a pinpoint of white light, or perhaps reflective material. I was curious and continued to watch it, and then noticed there was an identical object a short distance behind it. They moved at a moderate pace in a straight line and did not waver, which confirmed they were not birds. Then the second object started moving underneath the first one, but stayed the same distance apart and neither changed speed. It continued rotating around the first object until it was in front. Then they passed behind a building and from my sight.

It is possible they were satellites, but I have never seen two satellites near each other like that, never during the day, and they also moved slower than other satellites I have seen Recently someone in the bay area saw something similar: http://www.ktvu.com/news/16548130/detail.html. But the ones I saw were moving much more slowly. Their movement was not like anything alive or any other flying object I have seen before.
