Three bright round lights at high altitude hovering in the sky adjacent the airliner I was in. Moved very little

I had just departed DFW International Airport enroute to Little Rock Airport, and we were passing through a Flight Level as announced by the pilot. I noticed a bright round light in the distance. Being an Air Traffic Controller I thought this was an aircraft at first thinking it was in a sequence to land with two similar lights behind it, but the lights weren't flashing like most lights on an aircraft at night do. I thought then maybe it was in holding but the lights weren't really moving. This made kind of look harder at what I was looking at. I thought it kind of strange. They looked very similar to how bright lights are on top of a Radio tower or something but they weren't flashing. Of course, it was way too high for a tower or a helicopter because of the altitude we were at. By this time I am pretty sure were around FL 200 or higher. As we flew along what I initially thought to be a sequence into DFW started to look two of the lights came together and one was still in the distance behind it. These lights stayed like this for along time. The longer I looked the lights seemed to be in one spot the whole time. THey were big almost round spots of light just hovering in the sky. I looked around in the plane to see if anyone was seeing the same thing I was but no one was. These lights never really moved the whole time I watched and I stared at them til they were just tiny spots in the sky. They moved slightly lateral from each while I saw them. They were not aircraft and I still cannot to this day figure out what it was. I waited so long to report because I felt like people wouldn't believe me or think I was kind of crazy, but after reading the report about the Mexican Air Force pilots and their encounter ( it was in the news not too long ago)...what I saw was very similar to what they saw. I am not going to check any boxes below about being contacted but if anyone reading this wants to then they can contact me if they feel the need to
