6 or 7 lights flying in half a 'vee' formation

Looked up from my deck and saw 6 or 7 faint lights in 'half a vee' formation, heading east from overhead. This line was not straight, but organic in movement, 3 of the rear lights drifted off a little and one of the first ones drifted as well. Initially I thought it was geese, but it was 2:15am, and they 'were' lit up, although faintly, and they were a long distance away - moving like a satellite, except for the 'organic-ness'. They faded fairly quickly as the transparency of the sky wasn't crystal clear. I'm into astronomy, so this was one of the stranger things I've seen - and I've seen the NOS satellites - the 3 that fly in a triangle.
