Duration:60 seconds
2 lights, passing by each other, then 1 changed direction

2 objects high in the night sky - about the same brightness and size as I've seen satellites or planes at a very high altitude. One object was heading approximately 140-150 degrees (SE), the other at about 210-225 degrees (SW). The 225 degree object passed behind the path of the first, seemingly within a small distance away from the first. A short time after passing the other object, about 10 seconds or less, the 225 degree object changed direction and headed in approximately a 180-195 degree direction. The first object continued on its trajectory and they both continued in the direction they were until I could no longer see them due to either cloud cover or their distance from me.

About a minute after those 2 objects disappeared from my sight I saw a falling object at about 90 degrees from my location, likely part of the meteor shower expected tonight. It was dim then very bright, then gone. This object fell like a ‘falling star’, burning up on impact with the atmosphere.
