Were these stealth bombers or satellites or what the Hell were they?

Headed home near the Springfield Airport, pulled into driveway, and my wife had remarked how it was so nice we could still see the sky here.

I glanced just for a second, and focused for a moment on what I thought was a constellation...

As my wife headed inside I noticed these were in fact objects (I believe to be aircraft flying at extremely high-altitude, perhaps satellites) flying at a slow pace in a triangular flight pattern with the lead object at a much lower altitude (brighter light). As I continued to focus on this area the objects maintained their slow pace & pattern.

I have seen some of the stealth bombers flying in formation out here, in broad daylight, but those were flying at a much lower altitude (and the emission trail was unbelievable!)... being familiar with star-gazing I wouldn't put it past it that these were satellites... but I have NEVER seen so many satellites flying in a formation pattern like aircraft, I would imagine if these were satellites, they'd be at a relatively lower orbit than the many times I've seen satellites 'skipping' along before. There were at least 6 in one formation, with another two groups that I could see of around 6 or so staggered at the same incredible altitude.
