Two faint lights in the daytime sky.

On Saturday afternoon my wife and family and I were in our front yard playing ball with our kids.

My wife noticed what looked like a faint star or ultra-high altitude craft to the northeast at about 70 degrees up from the horizon. She asked me what I thought it was because I am a former US Marine air traffic controler and aircraft buff. It looked like a sattelite as it would be seen moving slowly across the night sky, except it was broad daylight.

I went inside the house and got a low power telescope to get a closer look, but never could locate the object due to the sunlight. The object moved north, turned east, then west in what looked to us like a 3/4 box turn. There it met with a second identical object briefly and they were lost behind a high altitude "whispy" cloud. They were so faint that they were hard to see, and eventually were simply gone.
