Three reddish orange star-like lights pass high in the sky.

I was out in my backyard with my brother. The sky's clearer tonight than usual, and there's supposed to be a lunar eclipse soon. So we're out there just looking at stars and whatnot, and my brother sees what looks about the same size as a star, only reddish orangish, and its moving. It's going straight, and very fast. Like, there are a lot of low flying planes that go over our house, and they move pretty quickly, but this thing was very high and moving just as fast. We looked through some binoculars, and it just looked like a star.. we couldn't see the form of anything around the light, like you usually can even with really high flying planes. The light wasn't blinking at all either. It went straight from over our house, north, over our backyard and out of view. A few minutes later we saw another of the same type of thing, this time from a little right of where we saw the first one come. Then a few minutes after that, another, from left of where the first one came. No more after that, but we've been in and out of the house since then. Hopefully when the eclipse happens it'll darken the sky enough for us to see more.
