Triangular and diamond shaped light formations.

I first saw two objects that appeared to be satilites. They both were headed Southeast from the general direction of snowbird ski resort. Keep in mind they looked like satilites and were nearly directly straight up from my location. I lost interest and called my dogs. I looked up again as small patch of clouds covered the leading satilite. On the other side of the cloud I saw more lights moving along the same path in a south east direction. Once all the objects cleared the cloud the satilites were in a triangular formation. The triangle was equilateral. In the middle of each flat of the triangle there was a satilite. So in all there were six satilites, three at each point and one dividing each flat. I believe this formation was in orbit and not in the atomosphere. The formations size is unknown. But judging from the distance I would say the object had a base length of twenty miles and each leg was twenty miles. Taking into account my visual angle the object ! took up a relatively small patch of sky. After observing the object for a time I noticed a diamond moving with it and directly ahead of it. Each point of the diamond had a light/ satilite at each point. Two satilites trailed it waving back and forth like a tail. This object appeared to have a light mist on its interior. The second formation was about an 1/8 the size of the delta. I second guessed that the clouds moving may have tricked my eyes. Possibly these were star formations and the clouds moving Northeast made them appear to be moving. Upon thinking this I noticed the formations moving relative to the stars and the stars didn't pass through them. The speed of the formations was slow but fast enough to cover the 50% of the sky I observed it move through before disappearing behind a cloud front. I am in the aviation industry and I know that aircraft have green lights on right wing, red on the left and white on the tail. All the lights were white. The size and behavior o! f these objects is unlike anything I've seen. The videos I too! k didn't show up. Grab a camera don't use your iphone. I can send an image if you think you can fix it. It's just black screen
