Sequence of lights

At sunset at my house, I was heading inside from playing catch with my son and happened to look up at the sky in the west to southwest direction from Colorado Springs and saw what looked light a slightly brighter than normal star. I could tell that this was pretty far away and too large to be a drone at this distance. At first glance I did not think anything of what I thought was a bright star appearing at sunset, after maybe only 2 or 3 seconds of first glance while the original "light" (what I though was a star) was stationary in the sky another light appeared directly to the left of the original light. This second light then stopped at a some distance to the left of the original light. The second light first appeared at the halfway point between where the original light was and where the second light stopped and remained stationary. I could not tell if the second light originated from the first light because it was first seen at the midway point.

The second light did however travel from the midway point to the left of the original light. When the second light stopped, there was a third light that then did the same thing, starting some distance to the left of the second light, travel a distance to the left and then stopped. As soon as the third light appeared, the first light then disappeared. However, the first and the third light did co-exist for roughly 1 second. Process then repeated around 8 or 9 times in a perfect horizontal direction over roughly 10 to 15 seconds. I could not see the lights past that point because of trees and buildings.

The lights appeared around twice the size and brightness of a normal star and moved in a perfect sequence of disappearing and reappearing lights with a "middle light" always present during the sequence. This also happened over a great distance and eventually left my visibility.
