2 star-like lights moving in tandem across the night sky

While sitting in spa with my 11-year old son, looking up at the sky, I saw two lights move across the sky. They were about the same brightness as the brightest stars in the sky. They looked like satellites but were moving much faster, say 10x faster. The two lights moved in a perfectly straight line across the sky, but were paired up with each other, and swapped relative positions with each other several times, one behind the other, then rotating to side by side, then back to front-and back, a few different times, randomly. The lights were a constant brightness, no blinking or wavering, they did not leave a trail. There was no sound at all.

The whole incident was over in perhaps 3 seconds. I stood up in the spa and pointed out the lights to my son but he didn't stand up and look in time to see anything.

We go in the spa every night and look at the stars. We see lots of planes at various altitudes, lots of satellites, and sometimes shooting stars. I've never seen anything which was comparable to these two lights. The strangest parts were their relative position movements, and the overall speed that they moved across the sky.
