one large round gleaming white object goes dark then drops into three smaller gleaming white objects

whlle drving along on Interstate 10 between Baton Rouge and Lafayette, a girlfriend and I were looking up at the nightime sky and we noticed a large round orb shinging brightly in the sky to our left, then it moved into the center of our vision and shortly after moving centerwise this one large orb went dark then it dropped into three smaller orbs and three orbs were also shining brightly, then a second later it became one large orb again and it began to move away in a westward direction.

it was a round orb shining brightly with a gleaming white light, then it went dark and dropped down into three orbs that looked like three balls on a string, which all three balls were shinning brightly, then it became one large ball again as it moved away in a westward direction, the color changed to a glowing hot pink or orange from this gleaming shining white light.

after it moved away, we noticed a military helicopter which could have been sent out from Lafayette, La. as that was the nearest town, and this helicopter was flying low and we laughted saying that the helicopeter must have been called out to chase a reported strange object in the sky.
