3 objects one flared up. GR MI

Myself, my girlfriend, sister in law, and her friend, were standing in our back yard chattin. I was lookin skyward wen i saw a object comparable with the stars. It was headin N-NE. Since it moved so fast i said look at that, everyon looked and found the object, we chatted bout satellites for a few seconds, when the whole thing flared up. It was so bright that it looked like it grew bout ten sizes larger for 3-5 seconds, then it went back to the normal tone. It never varied its heading this whole time. We could see it for prolly another three to four minutes before it covered the other half of our horizon an went outve view. As you could expect everyone was excited an watching the sky. Prolly 5 minutes later someone pointed out two more objects flyin close together from the east. We watched one object turn from headin NW (mostly west) along with the other an switch to N-NE. It seemed to follow the first object we seen, there direction mostly N by a lil NE. They both followed the restve of there headings true till they crossed the horizons an disapeared. One that switched seemed to increase speed an dissapeared a few minutes faster then the one headed NW. Both outve site in round 5 minutes.
