Fast moving lights.

I'm not new to viewing objects in the night sky. I can identify various planets and star formations. My boyfriend and I recently purchased a hot tub so we've been spending a lot of time relaxing outside at night and looking up. We watch the airplanes and helicopters fly by, and we've tried tracking the starlink but have yet to see it, although I'm aware what it looks like. I've even seen a couple shooting stars recently. Nothing, however, explains what I saw last night. It was so fast, the words wouldn't come out, and my thoughts struggled to catch up with what my eyes were seeing. I saw 3 lights in the distance disappear out of view due to our garage and shouted "what was that!?" My brain tried to rationalize that it was maybe 3 shooting stars moving together. It was as fast as one, without a tail, and was triangular in shape, with one star in front leading the other 2. I then saw the lights move up and align in a vertical line in the sky ( now maybe 5 of them), my brain wondering "wait, is that the starlink?," before the lights disorganized, one moving out of line, and circling the rest as they moved down where trees were blocking my view. As quickly as they appeared, they were gone. They made no noise, moved as quickly as shooting stars, were erratic in movements, but also synchronized. My boyfriend had no idea what I was seeing because I couldn't get any words out before they were gone. I never imagined I'd see something like this, nor have I ever tried looking for abnormalities in the sky. I am still shocked and processing what I saw, but it was unbelievable!!
