Two UFOs over Flagstaff in the Constellation of Cassiopeia

Tonight at about 7:23 pm Arizona Time, over the northeast sky of Flagstaff, my wife and I saw something that we can't quite explain in the night sky. We were taking a walk around our neighborhood in Flagstaff when I looked up at the northeast night sky and saw the constellation Cassiopeia. I immediately noticed something odd.

Cassiopeia looks like a W or a crown in the night sky but it looked much different tonight. I immediately noticed what looked like two bright stars (about as bright as Jupiter was tonight) in the bottom left hand of the W. They looked like two bright white satellites only they weren't moving. We watched them for probably 10 to 15 seconds and they didn't appear to move at all which I knew was strange. Then they slowly moved in formation off to the northeast and got dimmer as they moved that direction. I kept track of them for a while but then lost them.

They seemed to be high up there like they were in space, and there were no blinking lights so they couldn't have been planes. If they were planes, they sure didn't move like them, sitting still and then moving. My wife and I both saw these objects and couldn't explain what they were. The whole thing lasted for about a minute from when we first saw them to when they started moving and disappeared.
