2 brown/red objects in the sky seemingly chasing one another

It was the 12th August, 2015. I am an amateur photographer and was trying to get images of what was supposed to be the shooting stars. Turns out the shooting stars were further north of where I live.

I had quick look through my pictures the next day on the camera screen (Nikon D3100) and didn’t see anything, only today, 1st September, I have transferred my pictures to my desktop pc and noticed 2 brown objects. The intervalometer was set to take an image every 30 seconds. It was a relatively clear night, some clouds but clear enough to see a few stars. I live in a well-lit area of Birmingham so light pollution is a problem. On inspecting the 4 photos of 300 captured, which are taken 30 seconds apart a small brown/red object appears in photo 2/4 with another similar object just above it and to the right of the picture.

Photo 3 (30 seconds later) shows the object change direction and fly at a 45 degree angle towards the other object. They both seem to move in tand! em with each other and in the same direction as if the one is chasing the other. I have the images on my SD card which is still in the camera and the images backed up on my PC.

The images have been converted from a .RAW to a .JPEG image, if you would like the .RAW then please contact me.

I didn’t hear anything on the night, the camera was outside and I was inside watching over it.
