3 Bright Orange objects, travelng in a straight line, W-NW, in Madison, Wisconsin

Saw 2 bright, orange lights to the north. Very slight flicker but constantly visible. No visible aircraft lights or identifiers. Absolutely NO sound. 1 following the other about 4 fingers apart at arms length. Direction was N-NW. Easy to see the Big Dipper for reference. Unable to determine distance or altitude. Second object turned in a arc toward the north and disappeared. No clouds visible. The first object continued N-NW, in a straight line. A third object quickly appeared behind the first. Separation again about 4 fingers width at arms length. These continued now W-NW and again in a straight line. Speed about as fast as the International Space Station travels across the sky however these objects were brighter and orange. The second object then appeared from the area where it had disappeared from, traveled south for a short time. Then turned and followed the First and Third object to the W-NW. This object appeared to be traveling faster. Until the objects went over the horizon, all three were visible, in a straight line. Total visible time approx. 5 minutes.
