Cluster of nine satellites flying together, two veering around others.

While stargazing with my son using night vision goggles last night we both saw what looked like a cluster of nine Satellites flying east to west with two of the satellites weaving around the other seven. When they were almost out of view one veered directly south and they disappeard from our view. Approx. 5 minutes later we saw seven more flying in the same direction but made a big left bank heading south until out of view. After 5-6 minutes we saw five more of the same things flying in a near perfect straight line north to south until out of our view. The objects looked like satellites, no blinking light, very distant, no sound or trails but moved faster and not in the straight line across the sky.
