Replicating triangle light patterns over I-10 in Florida

Driving in Florida on I-10 heading west at about 10:30PM at approximately mile marker 90, my wife and I observed a bright, fairly dense (10 to 15 individual lights), stationary, triangular formation of white lights appear in the sky ahead (west) of our car. Another identical pattern appeared just north-east of the initial object and the first object faded. This pattern repeated to the north-east two more times and then disappeared completely. Within a minute or two the pattern started again. This time the pattern was moving in the south-east direction.

Being close to Eglin Airforce Base, I assumed these were heat-seeking missle avoidance flare tests.
