Three bright red lights moving east to west near FLL

I live in an area where you can see the planes going towards Fort Lauderdale Airport. Also in the vecinity there is a small airport for advertisement airplanes and helicopters. I also used to work as a night security guard outdoors. What I saw was not planes or helicopters.

I was walking out of a food store when I saw a bright, steady red light moving east to west which at first appeared to be an airplane. I noticed immediately it was not blinking but did not have the characteristics of a helicopter in flight at night.

I tried to photograph and video it with my cellphone. Just as I was putting away the phone, I saw an identical object move in the same direction just a short distance behind the previous one. For about 7 seconds I could see both bright red lights moving at the same speed. I tried to take pictures and video.

I drove towards a neighboring area away from the bright street lights. I had the impression that the air traffic was off, as planes appeared to be circling the airport. I could count 4 or 5 airplanes, clearly seen as blinking lights. Even airplanes that were moving away appeared like distant blinking dots. A small airplane landing at the little airport nearby appeared as one red light not too bright with a blinking red light. It was landing west to east and it was easy to identify as a small airplane.

At this point, I spotted the third, even brighter red light in the same point and moving in the same direction as the other two. This was about 21:10 hours. I walked away from my car to photograph and video it as it was even more clear than the other two and again did not resemble a plane. No sound could be heard at all. Even the regular planes I could hear when they are visible that way, much more helicopters.

After I lost sight of the third light, I waited about 15 more minutes but could not see anything besides planes. On video the planes also appear as blinking lights, small and white or white and red.
