Two distant shapes going west

Two friends and I were sitting in my back yard looking at the sunset on friday, sept 2, 2005. I diverted my eyes momentarily and two objects in the southward sky had caught the glare of the sunset. That is how i know they were metallic. They were very far off, possibly far enough to be in orbit, moving quickly due west at a uniform pace. They looked higher than i had ever seen a plane, but lower than i had ever seen an artificial satellite. I noticed the one to the rear first, and whether it was perspective or size, the one in the lead appeared smaller, yet moving at the same pace and appearing to be the same (MAYBE) cylindrical shape. The male friend of mine suggested that it was the international space station. I do not know, but a similar report given several years ago convinced me to put one in myself.
