A triangle-shape object that looked like balls tied together, flying in formation.

My daughter and I were out in our backyard, looking for meteors, and noticed a wispy-looking thing approaching in the sky from the northwest. As it approached, it seemed to form a triangular formation. I remember thinking that it looked like geese, but realized it was a "string" of glowing balls. The balls were golden/white in color, looking like dimmed light bulbs, and the formation appeared to be, perhaps, balloons tied together. My daughter and I figured that's what it was, catching the reflection of the moon, but as it went over our yard, we realized that balloons could not hold the triangular shape we were seeing. Also, the breeze was coming from the west and this formation was travelling north to south at approximately 25-30 mph. It made no noise whatever. It was very large. I have no way to determine the altitude, as it was dark outside, but I could clearly see that the individual "balls" were round in shape. The formation continued due south and then appeared to veer southwest as we lost sight of it. I called a friend who lived in that direction and asked her to look for it, but she didn't see anything. We were surprised to not hear anything on the news about it or read about it this morning in the paper. We are both sane females and as we discussed the event, as it was occuring, there is no doubt that we both saw the same thing at the same time.
