three pinpoint dots very high in the sky above Coconut Grove in Miami, FL

On Sunday, December 29th at about 1:45pm, while awaiting the beginning of the annual King Mango Strut Parade on Main Avenue in Miami's Coconut Grove, with about 10,000 other paradewatchers, I looked up thru a tree and saw 3 individual lights or reflections very high up in the sky directly above me. At first I noticed one white dot in the sky, and assumed it was just a lost balloon. However the object did not visibly move for a few minutes. When I looked again, about 3-5 minutes later, I noticed that two other objects of the same size were moving north towards the first one, which had moved slightly south from its original position. The three objets continued towards each other, and within 3-5 minutes eventully formed a triangle, still almost directly above me. Twice during this episode I asked my friend to look at the objects. He did see them the first time, but because of the branches in the tree, could not see them the second time. About 2 or 3 minutes later (the parade was distracting me!) when I looked up again, the three objects had straight-lined themselves, facing in a southwesterly direction, but still moving in a southerly direction, but the movement was almost imperceptable. I could only track the change using a couple of branches for positioning. A couple of minutes later, I could no longer find any of the objects. During this time, thre were no clouds visible in the sky. I did see a couple of aircraft, including a 727 and an ATR pass overhead, which helped somewhat to better estimate that these objects were extremely high in the sky. Their size from where I stood was not much more than pinpoints. I have to say that I do not follow these sightings, and don't fully believe in little green men. NO, I am not a Raelian! I do not know who to contact to find out what it was I saw. Could they have been Predator drones practicing maneouvers? I believe they were much too high for small weather balloons, given that I could see them. The aircraft I saw, flew almost directly underneath the objects.
