Two balls of light one after the other from the same star cluster. Both at high speed going in Different Directions

I was sitting outside at around 6:30 pm , Noticed a light red ball of light moving at high speed. I ran inside to grab my women so i knew i was not seeing things . We compared the hight and speed compared to the normal aircraft flying in and out of ACT airport. Both of us deciding it was way to high and fast to be any normal conventional aircraft. To fast to be a satelite. It was moving towards the horizon starting pritty much above us and was at the horizon within 20 seconds. As it disappered i looked at the same star cluster it had came from and noticed another one moving at the same speed but in a diffrent direction. It was racing along for around 10 seconds when it dipped down with no change of speed . It made a few turns then shot of in the direction it was first headed. I am spun out ....
