Formation of shiney dots travels in same traffic lane as normal aircraft.

I was looking up at the clouds and explaining to my 4 year old son that they move with the wind, when I noticed 2 white, shiny dots appear and then behind them, 2 more, they were moving in a northeast direction. When I couldn't view them anymore I looked back at the cloud and there was one more that seemed to be following them in the same direction and I watched it until it disappeared. These "dots" were moving fairly fast. Faster than an aircraft would have at that altitude. There are airplanes flying overhead all the time heading towards either Brainard Airport or Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks. I went inside and called my mother to tell her of my experience and then went back outside about 10 minutes later. I layed on the sidewalk watching the sky again and sure enough, I saw a bigger dot coming from the northeast heading southwest this time. As I watched it it split up into a triangle shape with 3 of the dots at the angles and one of the dots kept going back and forth between the other 3 as if "merging" and then coming apart. I am a very sane person and I tried to convince myself that what I was seeing was a flock of birds or some aircraft or anything but UFOs, but after watching these craft for about 5 minutes until they disappeared into the clouds, I can only say that I don't know what they were. Just bright, shiny dots that seemed to move with a definate purpose.
