Brisbane, Australia Light Hovers Then Splits In Two

You are the first one I have shared this with.
I live in the northern suburbs of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia. On Saturday night (Sept. 11) at about 1830 I was walking my dogs on the sports ground near my house where I walk every night. I live at a high elevation and have 270 degree views. As I was about half way around the ground, I was looking north toward an especially bright star, wondering what planet it was. As I was looking, what seemed to be another, smaller star, the same size and brightness as most of the others, started moving fast in a straight line. It looked just like a moving (NOT shooting) star (I walk every night and see plenty of shooting stars). I was looking due north, and it appeared to be moving toward the east - toward the Pacific Ocean. I am positive of the direction because I also walk there in the morning and I know where the sun rises. It was too high and too fast to be a plane. I have worked at airports for 16 years and travelled a lot so I know what I'm talking about. After about 3 seconds the object abruptly stopped, stayed still momentarily, split into two, and disappeared. I have not seen anything like it since.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
