Triangle shape made by 3 lights, the center had no lights. Orb spotted at the same time.

I look at the constellation Orion every night while walking my dog. This night I noticed more “stars” to the SE of the constellation near Sirius, I stared long enough to see movement. There was no sound associated with the sighting. I don’t have noise pollution where I live, if there was sound it would’ve been apparent. There were 3 lights (similar colors to stars) in the shape of a triangle that moved in unison to the SE of Sirius. It was hard to gauge how far away the object was. After the triangle object left my line of sight, an orb appeared near Orion’s Belt. It seemed to swirl/dance, the color was yellow/orange. It moved around in the same area then disappeared. I see orbs frequently from my yard as I have very little light pollution even though I’m near a large city. I live at the base of Cheyenne Mtn, I’m very familiar with known military aircraft, how they sound and fly, also familiar with the difference between satellites and Starlink.
