3 lights single object

Saw 3 lights moving in unison, slowly in the same direction over my neighborhood.

It was heading West. 3 lights blinking one at a time from West to East. Light blinking repeated once a second in total for all 3 lights blinking in a loop - 1,2,3 - 1,2,3 No engine sounds. Looked extremely wide/long from our view.

The light's rate of blinking sort of looks like normal aircraft. Only there were 3 lights, and all 3 lights moved together, and their blinking pattern was synced up as if highlighting a single shape. Unclear if disc/chevron/whatever.

If it was 3 helicopters, they did a really good job going at the same speed in the same direction, really really slow.

I've seen normal helicopters flying over my house before. Lights look different, and I can hear the engines.

Only other simplified guess I can make is some kids tied 3 drones together with a really really long fishing line. I wouldn't be surprised if it was more than 1 to 3 miles long. I'm no pilot or anything. So my ability to judge the distance/speed/size is based on only my understanding that a traffic light is as big as I am close up.
