Fleeting triangular object following a meteor path

My wife and I were walking our dog in the late evening. We had just sat down on a park bench behind a building when I saw a falling star (meteor) fall quite brightly, appearing between the building and a tree line to our left. I asked my wife if she saw the meteor but she was looking in another direction. Five seconds after that I saw what appeared to be three diffused light-colored spots (very close together) flying in the exact course the meteor had taken. This only lasted a second, again my wife did not see this new thing. While it might have been a bird (or birds) I am curious about the shape and manner in which it flew, but mostly the direction -- right behind the ‘falling star’. It seemed to have been at a greater distance than if it had been a bird, possibly a large object of some kind. This happened near the Providence/Pawtucket line: Rhode Island.
