8-10 lights flying in circle formation during lunar eclipse.

I was outside viewing the lunar eclipse around midnight. To the south of the moon I saw movement and there were approximately 8-10 faint white lights in a circle. There were some clouds so maybe they were behind them. They were really high in the sky and I thought from their angular shape they were birds at first. They flew in formation and each light peeled away from the ring and made a spiral in the sky, like drawing a number 9, then disappeared. It all happened within a minute or so.

I kept looking to see if I could see them again, but they were gone.
