Interesting Observation

Sunday morning about 2:30 a.m. I was out taking more pictures of the Milky Way. I put the pictures onto my computer and noticed in two separate pictures I had two shooting stars running parallel to one another. Now it could have been the same two shooting stars but the pictures were taken about one and a half to two minutes apart. Making them the slowest moving meteors or an absolute rarity. They seem to be heading in the same exact direction so I am inclined to believe they are the same two meteors.

DSC_3813 (Custom)They are to the right of the milky way about half way up in this picture.

DSC_3814 (Custom)They are about one-third of the way from the bottom in this picture which was taken about one and a half minutes after the first picture. Now it could be possible that they appear in the last second of the first photo and the first second of the second photo but there is still the issue that the auto noise reduction in my camera takes about the same time as the shutter speed.
If anyone has any ideas about this I would love to hear them or read them actually since this is a blog and I cannot literally hear it.
