|My wife and I were standing outside talking to our neighbor, staring into the sky from time to time looking due north east. Suddenly, an ISS-like object (in terms of magnitude and size) appeared and started to move in a straight line, fairly quickly, across the sky from the NE to E direction, at about a 20 to 25 degree altitude. At first, I yelled "It's the space station!" What was strange was that it was accompanied by a light above it, slightly dimmer, about half or more of a full moon apart. It moved at the same speed, in roughly the same direction. Both lights blinked out about 5 seconds after appearing.
I checked the satellites in our area using this site: http://spaceweather.com/flybys/ and I don't see anything that matches that time, our area, and the area of the sky it appeared in.
