Dark UFO moving slowly northbound on I-15

Driving north on I-15, looking northwest, 3 of us saw what first looked like a strange disk shaped cloud, dark grey to black in color. The sun was low in the sky (just past golden hour) joking about it being a ufo, driving closer it appeared to have form, and we realized it wasn't behaving like any cloud, it was moving eastward slowly until it started to split into 3 forms and turned moving due north. It was perhaps 3 objects in formation from the beginning. I say this because they remained horizontal to each other, spaced equally apart.

They stayed in this formation as it moved away (northbound, west of I-15) in the distance until it was too far and dark to see anymore. The smaller objects had a similar form as it first appeared while larger. We estimate size (first formation size) to be about 500-600 ft across due to position in sky and distance.
