Cargo Fleet Through Buffalo New York, USA, 14204 near Canadian border

We were outside and we looked up in the sky. We saw what appeared to look at a very bright star moving across the sky. We kept watching it for a few minutes in and it beyond the clouds. We then saw a few more less bright "moving stars" following behind.

I pointed them out to my friend because he didn't think the first one was a craft saying stars move. I explained that they don't move like that. ''

About a minute later, we saw another six crafts in a different formation. I commented that they are really moving under the cover of the clouds in our area. When I scanned the sky again I saw two crafts in front of the original very bright craft that initially caught my attention. I have seen many crafts moving in the sky, but never this many - this close together. My friend said they were likely planes. I explained planes do not fly that high. Possible that they could be drones operated remotely, but I do not think this many in these particular formations or! at these speeds. Possible that it could be satellites but again not in these formations moving at these speeds or this many at one time. The crafts were moving from North Easterly to South Westerly direction. I never have reported sightings in the past and wasn't going to report this one. A quick search online showed a few articles indicating that a "cargo fleet" was moving through our inner solar system.

I was very fortunate to view this from Buffalo, N.Y. 14240, USA under a partly cloudy sky with a dark backdrop beyond the sky. I just wish I had 1 - a scope & 2 - another enthusiast to witness this event!

Note: The shapes of the crafts were not identifiable from the distance and I was viewing with my naked eye.
