Strange blue lights over Kitchener.

I was out in my back yard having a cigarette, staring up at the stars as I usually do when I'm smoking at night. Then I saw a dim, blue light to the west about 45 degrees above the horizon. It looked and moved like a plane at first, but then it flared up in brightness, then faded out and disappeared. Then just behind where this light first appeared, a similar light appeared and did the same thing. It began looking and moving like a plane just as the first light did, flared up in brightness, then faded out and disappeared. Then behind where that one appeared, another. identical light appeared and did the same thing as the previous two. After this, there were two more lights which did the exact same things as the previous lights, each time appearing slightly behind where each subsequent light appeared. I thought they may have been satellites, though it was unlikely, given the fact that there were so many of them. But I checked the simple satellite tracker anyw! ay, and saw that there were none scheduled to pass overhead at that time. The lights made no noises like you would expect a plane to. So I'm really at a loss as to what these lights might have been.
