Two solid white lights flying in formation over the Colorado Rockies

While looking at the stars, we saw two steady white lights flying in formation, traveling from north to south across the horizon. They were travelling rather fast and at the exact same speed the entire time we saw them, one slightly below and behind the other. The light went from similar to that of a star to very bright (resembling a spotlight) then gradually dimmer until we could no longer see them. Almost as if the light was rotating very slowly. When the light was brightest, it appeared to be vertically oblong in shape. We waited to see if they appeared farther down the horizon, but they did not. At the same time, airplanes were visible in other areas of the sky. Since they looked nothing like the planes, we decided they must be UFOs.
