Three red lights equally spaced one on top of another in Eastern Sky

I was outside looking for the Northern lights that evening. I decided to do a little sky gazing while out there. I located the galaxy andromeda in the northeastern sky quite a bit east/south east of this galaxy I saw three redish glowing lights. They were one on top of another, spaced incredibly equally apart. I remember thinking how odd it was how exactly perfectly spaced they were. I did see five aircrafts, not circling them, but flying in between them. The sky was perfectly clear that evening, about after an hour of them not moving. I went inside. I periodically went back outside every twenty minutes or so, until 23:00. The only odd thing that happened was the last couple of times I went outside the lights were now white instead of red. They were there for a full two hours, that I had seen, then the last time I went outside they were gone. However the two hours that I did see them, they did not move what so ever. And they were not stars. I am a very frequent sky gazer, I know what I saw was a very odd occurence. I honestly don't know if this has anything to do with it. But the following morning both mine, and my husband's car did not start.
