Earth Skimmer Meteor?

On the date/time posted, at approximately one mile north if I-71 and Polaris Parkway, I observed several bright lights moving west to east that appeared to be no more than 500 to 1000 ft. above the ground. The lead object was brighter than approximately 5 others, which were randomly spaced behind the lead object 100 to 250 ft. traveling in a parallel path and seemingly contained in the faint trail of the lead object. As I approached a point underneath where they appeared to have crossed above me on I-71, the collection of objects continued on a low, straight easterly path and gradually disappeared.
