3 lights, odd red color

Last night 5/8/21, driving home around 9:00 PM, a couple of minutes from my house, I saw three red lights in the sky. They were a strange color of red, almost like a roadside flare color. I followed out on to a dark country road. Two of the lights disappeared. Then the last one disappeared. Then it reappeared, then another, then all three From my perspective, they were not in a line nor triangle and were at different altitudes. I estimate below 3 thousand feet, the height normally helicopters are seen at. The objects did not have any navigation lights and there was no sound. I tried to catch a movie. I thought I was taking a movie and even zoomed in enough to see a hexagonal structure in the center. It turns out I wasn’t recording. Too much inexperience and adrenaline. Anyway, I got home and sat in the driveway looking for them. While watching after about 3-4 minutes, I see the starlink line transiting, moving towards the east. I live just north! of Washington PA. What I saw was not Starlink, but that is an odd coincidence. Also, I worked for the USAF for 25 years and have seen many objects flying, but never one I couldn’t ID.

This morning, searching around the internet, I found a picture that most closely resembled what I saw.

I do so hope you have a report that discusses the same sighting.
