two star light object seen minutes apart moving slowly across the sky originating and ending at the same locaiton

From a balcony looking ENE I was looking at a star in the sky when a second "star" appeared above it of about the same light intensity. The intensity remained the same as it moved in a straight line at a slow rate of speed for about 5 seconds before disappearing. It was not blinking and did not appear to be an airplane or a meteor. My guess was that it was a satellite, except within a matter of minutes a second light appeared in precisely the same spot as where the first appeared, was of slightly greater intensity, and moved across the same path as the first before disappearing. The possibility of two satellites on the same trajectory only minutes apart seemed odd.
