Silent white-lighted oval orb followed at distace by smaller reddish object.

International Space Station? with a smaller reddish object following at a space of about 15 times the length of the first, which appeared as a white lighted silent oval orb. Impression was that the object following could have been towed by a cable from the first, as it did not deviate in distance or accuracy of tracking.

The object moved from West to East. No flashing lights were detected as with aircraft.

Confirm Peter Davenport's WA state sighting of same evening.
