Two star-like objects were seen high in the sky both moving in one direction

I was outside on my porch just looking at the stars since the all the street lights were off due to the power outage in the area caused by a hurricane that passed a week ago from that time. I was looking a set of three stars when two of them started moving in a uniform direction probably northwest from my position. My mother came outside and I pointed the two "stars" out to her and she noticed them too which reassured me that I wasn't trippin. We both deduced that it was too high to be a plane, i suggested that it might've been satellites but reasoned that they wouldn't probably be so bright that high up and two of them probably wouldn't be so close together moving in the same direction. As a matter of fact a real plane passed by and we both compared it to the plane and knew that definitely wasn't that because it didn't have any colored lights are anything blinking. They looked just like a stars: bright and circular.
