3 close and slow moving ? flaming objects high in atmosphere, moving southerly toward a common focal point--mid-Atlantic/BWI region

November 21, 2014, 4:55pm (EST) Report of odd sighting in southwestern sky near BWI airport, in Maryland—Cluster of 3 slow moving, illuminated objects high in atmosphere, had not a dual but bifurcated short tail—hence they did not look like aircraft.

All three lit objects moving south but almost toward each other to some focal point? They appeared too close to each other to be airplanes; moving in a southerly direction. Head of each moving object appeared wider than an aircraft. No audible noise noted.

Please help us figure out what they were!

Thank you!

((NUFORC Note: We have responded to the witness, inquiring whether the objects might have been aircraft, with contrails streaming out behind them. Her description makes us wonder whether they might have been high-altitude aircraft. PD))
