Mysterious lights moving from the western sky to the eastern sky, 2 groups of 10, in line formation but distances were varying between

I went out for a walk at 5:50 AM PST and was surprised that it was a clear night sky, since I went to bed to heavy rain. As I walked south on our loop taking in the amazing stars, I saw what appeared to be 2 stars moving from my left to right – they appeared to be a similar distance apart as two stars in the big dipper handle. They were moving quite rapidly, and my initial assumption was that it was the space station but, then told myself there wouldn’t be two. I watched for about a minute and was going to run back to the house to wake my wife to see it… as I paused, I noticed a whole stream of similar lights following in somewhat equidistant distance but in a following formation. There were about 10 in total zooming from west to east.

At this point, I ran in, woke up my wife and had her outside in less than 2 minutes hoping they were not gone… to my surprise, I saw the tail end of the original set, with a new set that were heading east in a slightly more northeast direction which were led by 4 lights and then another 6 or more trailing single file. They all moved from west to east and disappeared from sight because of the trees – we have tall trees in the neighborhood, so I would assume my viewing angle is about 40 degrees west to east..

There were no sounds and they were quite small like the space station – I watched as an airplane passed just minutes later and I could faintly hear the jet as it passed and the jet “light” footprint was larger than the unidentified lights.

My initial thoughts… - I am up every morning for years and have never witnessed anything like this before, though I often see aircraft and hear them since SeaTac airport is about 40 miles north of us - There were 2 distinct sets of objects – the first moving east on a slight southerly tangent, the second which my wife also saw moving east on a slight northerly tangent - The distance between the objects was not consistent – it appeared if one would speed up to catch another but I never saw one move past the one in front of it; they were definitely a group and they were definitely trailing each other in a very organized fashion - They moved rapidly across the sky, similar to the international space station moves in relation to my view We live near JBLM and our initial thought was military aircraft… but 20 or more? That would be a lot of military craft. With no sound accompanying? With the ability at a distance to close the gaps between them in seconds?
