3 red/orange objects rapidly move across the sky near Dallas on Thanksgiving eve

At approximately 8 PM CST we were stargazing in our back yard. While I was lining up my telescope with the moon and mars, we observed an object come across the sky. It was moving so fast I could not get it lined up in the telescope. It moved from the southwest sky flying towards the northeast. In total, there were 3 objects, spaced approximately 2-3 minutes apart following the exact same pattern. The objects glowed red or orange as they approached and from behind. There was no noise. The object was at least 5,000 feet up and rapidly moved across the sky. We are near an airport and there was a SW flight in the landing pattern (they may have seen it) and it was significantly higher than that and the objects we saw were going much faster. As the 3rd object passed us, I ran to the front of the house and saw it flicker and disappear a moment later.
