Characteristics: Lights on object

Up to 3 lights in the sky, every morning at 4am, 3 locations, 200 miles apart. Fade in, fade out. Sometimes overlaying each other.

It started in early December. Stuart, Iowa at 4am. I noticed 3 lights that looked like stars. They would move slowly one direction to another, dimming and brightening in sequence, going different directions, usually horizontal, but sometimes doing strange S maneuvers. Sometimes it's one, or two, up to three. I drive trucks for work on the same route, so I saw them every morning. After January 1, my route changed. I saw these things in the exact same spot, 200 miles west in York, Nebraska. Then at my home in Lincoln, Nebraska.

I checked flight radar and satellite trackers to find nothing. Given the distance and angle, they have to be out of our atmosphere. But what would maneuver like this?? I found a video matelast month, where two jetliners reported exactly the same thing to ATC. The objects were high above the planes, which adds to my conclusion. The video even played the ATC controller questioning someone above her that also showed nothing on radar.

As of this morning, it's been at least two months of this. I took some night mode shots with my phone, but they're only 3-5 second shutter. I brought out my big camera and set to a 10 second shutter and managed to capture two of them in one shot. It's driving me legitimately crazy seeing them every single night with no explanation. My coworkers have also witnessed them.
