Formation of satelites ?

While observing the constellation Lyra on that warm crisp clear night I spotted 3 small dots, just like 3 "satelites" flying in a triangular formation. I could follow the three of them for approximately two to three minutes while they flew from North-North-West to South-South-West. They were flying very high and made no sound at all.

P.S. I read a report from people in New-England who had the same experience and I believe it's actually strange that they observed it in the same area of the sky while being at a couple of thousand miles from me.

((NUFORC Note: We will check, if possible, but we suspect that the observations occurred at different times. That would explain why they could be seen in "the same area of the sky." We are not precisely clear on what the witness is stating here. PD))
