Location: Temecula, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:~10 seconds
Two very bright 'stars', one of them red, moving slowly from south to north then fading away.

I walked out my front door to look at the stars(my door faces south)as soon as I looked up I was confused by what I saw, two bright 'stars' that did not belong, between the constellations of Scorpio and Libra.

Their brightness was about twice that of the stars in Scorpio. One had a red hue about the same as Antares the other had no color.

When I looked closer I saw that they were moving very slowly to the north the red one ahead of the other.

Their distance from each other was less than the spread of the three stars at the head of Scorpio.

After watching for less than ten seconds they both faded out while they were still just west of the head of Scorpio.

If it was one faint light I would assume it was a circumpolar satellite passing into the Earth's shadow, but their brightness was about the same as the ISS and one of them red?

Very bizarre.
