Star like moving objects?

We were camping in the Umatilla National Forest and I was looking at 2 stars near the big dipper. The stars were positioned just like a colon : they smoothly and quickly rotated in a clockwise fashion, very uniformly and ended up looking like two periods .. then they separated away from each other simultaneously. At first I thought it might be aircraft but the lights where not blinking. One headed easterly and the other westerly and then disappeared. It was too high in the sky to be the road. Any astronomical phenomenon that sounds like this?
