Witnessed two strange white lights in the sky from my home in Sunderland, UK

Back in June I reported a UFO to you that turned out to be a Satellite of some sort but now I have seen something that cannot be explained by a Satellite pass as I checked all the times for Satellite passes before I went out Sky watching last night you can find visible passes for my area at the following link -

So I have ruled that explanation out this time and I believe what I saw this time around is definitely something Unknown may be ET but it could also be Natural I don't know.

It was 23 minutes past 11pm on July 15th 2006 and I was conducting a Sky Watching as I normally do when the night’s sky is clear. I looked down to configure my camera on the settings I wanted it on and then turned it off I then looked up to see a light that was brighter than anything else in the sky. I compared the light to stars in the area and also a plane that I had seen moments before and it was way brighter than anything.

It then got even brighter than in initially was to begin with and slowly started to move to the right. I began to get my camera ready when the light slowly began to dim out until it disappeared into seemingly nowhere. I looked around the area but could see absolutely nothing else in the area the only things I could see were stars in the sky and nothing else. It was a very weird encounter and reminded me of the "Phoenix Lights" that have been seen over Arizona State, USA for many years now. But my eventful night was not over just yet, at 5 minutes past midnight I looked up at the sky this time in the opposite direction of the first light this light was much different to the bright one this light was quite dim and looked like an ordinary star but the difference was the object was moving very slowly across the sky I estimate at around 3MPH the object was very small and I got my video camera ready but the light was just not bright enough and I could not see the light in the viewfinder and then the light just disappeared and could no longer be seen. At this point I was getting tired so I ended my sky watch feeling very happy that I had seen a UFO.
