Strange Triangular Lights Flying Over the Seattle Area

I was driving to work in regular rush hour traffic, traveling West on Interstate-90. It was a bright sunny day with the rising sun shining west towards Seattle and the Olympic Mountains. Light was relfecting and it was beautiful. Approximately above Lake Washington, about the height of traffic helicopters, I saw 3 lights moving East almost along the freeway. They were moving steadily and seemingly average speed, but their shape was very long, with the apex of the triangle shape above 2 smaller white lights. They appeared to be one object moving absolutely together. I kept looking while I was driving, at first thinking it was a helicopter with smaller planes flying near it. When I went around the overpass and looked back again, it had disappeared. The top light was so bright, it almost blinded me. It wasn't a blimp, a jet plane or a helicopter. I was convinced I had seen a UFO and went to work as usual. I told my coworker what I had thought, but did nothing else! I listened to the news that morning to see if anyone else had seen anything in the area. Nothing. I slowed in the traffic to just look up and try to figure it out.
