3 lights travelling very fast with the 2 on the side keeping very haphazzard courses

I was looking out my bedroom window just after midnight and noticed 3 odd lights in the sky. I live very close to the Vancouver airport and have seen hundreds of aircraft (commercial and military) in the last couple years. This aircraft(s) was bizzare. It was as if there was one "leader light" that kept a very straight course. There was one light on the left and one on the right side that kept very haphazzard courses, swirling around the middle light, but never crossing in front or behind it. The lights seemed fairly high, but were uncommonly bright for that height. Judging from what I assumed its height was, the velocity made it clear it was not a commercial aircraft, and even passed a military plane's speed.

I saw three lights, but was unable to tell if there were three separate crafts. The reason for posting this sighting now instead of last year, is because I just read on of someone else seeing a similar craft at almost the same time.
