triangular shaped cluster resembling Stars

First I noticed, then my wife noticed and verified and photographed a triangular cluster of three stars far above 30000 feet above the approach path for airplanes 4 Hartsfield International Airport in Atlanta. What appeared to be a triangular cluster of stars moved apart then move back together.

Could not have been a helicopter because they are not allowed to fly in this airplane pathway.

Could not have been a blimp because these were far too high. Could not have been a meteor or asteroid because they would have been inflamed when entering the Earth's atmosphere and moving.

Was definitely not a plane because we watched the lights in a stationary orbit.

We then photographed them as they separated and came closer back together.

Could not have been a drone because for a drone to be seen and that altitude, it would have to be huge and larger than a 747.
