10 lights flying in formation behind an airplane

Around 21:00 when it was just getting dark, my girlfriend said, "What the heck?!" and I looked up and saw 10 lights in the sky in an odd formation. They seemed to be following a normal airplane at first, but the plane flew off. They were pretty high up there, and flew slowly but consistently, moving southward for about 3 minutes until they just kind of disappeared into the horizon. The "10 lights" looked almost the size of a plane in the distance, but they were dimly lit, and the light being emitted did not look like that of a plane. There were no visible blinking lights on the sides like a normal airplane. They would not show up on my cell camera, but the normal airplane did. My girlfriend compared them to "little candles floating." Another neighbor parked and got out of car trying to take pictures. She also had no idea what they could be. I have lived here all my life and never seen anything like this.
