Two Tandem Bright Reflective Objects Traveling Southeasterly

Navajo, New Mexico, Thanksgiving Day 2009 evening some time between 5:30pm and 6:30pm Saw a bright object flying south that was being followed by a smaller bright object. These two objects seemed to reflect the light of the sun. The sun had set for us about 10-20 minutes before and was twilight and not full dark yet. These objects were very high up and moving quickly in a straight line across the sky. Four of us watched the objects move further southeasterly and slowly fade in brightness until they were no longer visible in the dark sky.

I remembered that the shuttle was due to depart the International Space Station that day. I know that as the shuttle departs it trails the ISS widening the distance between them. Maybe this is what I saw.
