Glowing orbs flying in formation in the New Bedford sky

While Driving down North Street in the west end of New Bedford, my wife and I came down a hill, and noticed what looked like a large crane with three lights on it, rising over a tree in the distance.

Suddenly the three lights shot up into the air like fireworks that never extinguished. There were three orangish-red twinkling orbs in the sky. I pulled over and got out of my car and noticed others were doing the same as me. The three orbs formed a triangle in the sky that hovered for 10 seconds or so. then the shape dispersed and the orbs started doing 'S' patterns, slowly hovering around the sky.

Then the three orbs, which were at least 2-3 times the size of a normal plane flashing in the sky, formed what looked like a bird's wingspan. the orbs held this formation for approximately 10 seconds, before forming a straight line and fading into the clouds one by one.
