Three Star like non-blinking lights moving South to North, One Changes Direction to South East

I went outside to get some air. I was looking up at the sky, checking out the moon (I was facing south and then I looked up and to the left) Saw a plane flying from South to North, blinking white light and red light. (I was in the USAF for 8 years, and am very familiar with aircraft lights, landing lights, aircraft size, etc.) Started looking at the direction of Venus and then I saw one bright small light, to the left of Venus, moving from South to North.

It caught my eye because it was not blinking, just steady light. I followed it from South over Venus, and then to the North. Then it disappeared to the North.

I turned and looked to the left at the moon, and that back in the direction of Venus (as I looked at the moon, Venus was to my direct right). I saw another (second) steady small light travelling north. Steady light, no blinking lights.

Then about a half mile behind it, since it was way off in the distance and looked way above the clouds 4 to 5K feet or more, another (third)steady white small star light like moving from South to North.

This time the first light made a round turn from North to East and then South East. The Second light continued straight and went out of sight. I followed the first light as it headed Southeast and disappeared above the clouds.

All three lights were constantly steady; no blinking lights near or on it, just steady white light.

Seemed very strange to me. Not a satellite since the second one clearly changed direction.

Speed was constant on all separate 3 lights. All 3 lights were at least a mile or so apart.

Although the first light was vastly separate (in distance and time, about 5 minutes time went by from the first one until I saw the second two.
