Two satellites crossing Orion's belt.

Yesterday (30 April 2010) I saw two satellites - the wierd thing was that one was following the other. The brighter one (white, mag -1 maybe) was following the first one (reddish, mag +2 maybe) at a distance of maybe 1 minute. Their path was perpedicular to Orion's belt, intersecting it in the middle, going towards the direction of Orion's sword. The time was maybe 8 utc. Orion was sideways wwell above the western horizon.
It seemed like a military maneuver, a secret classified mission rehearsing space warfare, part of the USA's threatened full spectrum dominance.
It didn't seem to be the international space station. It is a lot brighter.
