Formation of 18 to 20 bright objects leaving contrails in Wichita Kansas

An entire formation (18 to 20 objects) of very "hot" streaking objects moved accross the sky fron our location moving from southwest to northeast. The "formation was led by two very bright lights leaving streakish orange/yellow contrails. The balance of the objects (each leaving an orange very long very bright contrail) followed. The only description I can thing of to descrinbe the formation was like an almost dry paint brush run accross a wall. The number of objects tended to decrease as they proceded northeast from this location in Southwest Wichita Kansas.
