7/30/2010/ 9:30-11:30pm/Sighting Over Paterson NJ Two Satellite Looking Objects; Second Objects Lights Up For A Moment Then Dims Again

My Brother , his girlfriend and I were in my parents hot tub relaxing looking up at the stars , when my brother and I saw a shooting star or possible summer meteor. Well then he saw another one in the same part of the sky and then I saw another one again also in the same part of the sky the first two had been in I concluded it had to be a meteor shower, then his girl friend said "What that moving up there?" we were all looking up and we watched as this small little dot moved across the sky I figured it was a satellite it appeared to make a straight line but more like those carts from IKEA make a straight line... NW in direction hugging the west. We all just keep talking about ghost stories and what we thought of aliens and other things that we all thought maybe we saw something, my, brother and I continued to look at the sky, until I saw another object exactly the same out of the corner of my eye this one looked as if it came from the same sector of the sky! as the fisrt one but was on a slightly different path, now the strange thing about this one is that my brother and I we watching it as I said "look it's getting brighter" when it light up like a light bulb and then dimmed again, we were both aw stricken for a moment but thought that if it was a satellite it could have been the moon reflecting off of the wing of the satellite, but than I looked into it further and found that only the sun is bright enough to do that but from the angle we were at and where it shinned would have been the complete opposite direction of where the suns beam would have caught it. anyway the second one looked as if it was also going north but on a different path but hugging the west even more so than the first. I looked into sighting the next day and found something about the UK, and Uruguay, but nothing that match we we all saw that night any who the sky is still pretty cool!
