3 rapidly blinking (shimmering) lights in formation

While outside I noticed a rapidly blinking object, about the size of a star (to show how high it must have been). There werent really any colors, it was rapidly blinking, much like a crystal in the light, sparkling.

While looking at this one for about 1 minute later I saw another and another, three of them in formation moving parallel with one another in formation all blinking the same way, but NOT at the same time.

Once I saw 3 of them in perfect formation I called my friend out to observe them, the clouds were coming and had covered up the furthest one (or the one on the bottom of the formation) but she saw 2 of them in formation.

She insisted they were planes simply in formation, but as they went by we saw a plane very high up as well and could easily be identified as one.

Then we watched until the other 2 had gone into the cloud as well, we waited and waited for about 15 minutes because there was just one large cloud and then a clearing but after I had w! aited for another 20 minutes I had realized that they were gone.
