While operating an aircraft in cruise at FL400, the crew observed 3 lights appearing and disappearing for approximately 1 hr 25 min.

While in cruise flight originating from the east coast the aircraft was heading 305 at FL400. The object/objects were first sighted NW of Jacksonville Florida, and were observed for the duration of cruise flight (approx 500 miles/1.4 hrs). The object would appear at approx 290 Deg from the aircraft at approx 35 deg angle from the horizon. They would appear as lights that were very dim and would gradually appear brighter and then gradually dim until they disappeared. The frequency of appearance was approx every 5-8 min. We observed up to 3 light at a time that appeared to be maneuvering laterally around each other in different directions. For the entire flight, these objects would appear and disappear in almost the exact place in the sky relative to crew, even though the aircraft was traveling over 500 miles distance. Other aircraft noticed and advised ATC of the sightings.
