Odd lights/large slow craft north of indy?

I left the house to pick up my kid when I noticed an aircraft in the south sky. Something about it seemed a little off, so I became distracted enough that I found it hard to watch the road instead of the sky.

What I saw was confusing. It was a line of 4 or 5 white and amber lights, much like an aircraft but much too large to be as distant as it looked. It moved slowly and silently, gliding low in the sky. I lost sight of it through the trees a few times as I drove. A minute or two later there were a few other small, slow triangles of blinking light in the sky, too. One triangle soon looked more like a diamond.

For one brief instant, the line of lights seemed to have a faint gray coin shape below it, as if the whole thing might be a lighted disc tilted to an angle. The small objects seemed to move less slowly. Some lights blinked or changed from white to amber, but I canít remember a pattern. It all just seemed odd and moving strangely.

I was north of Indy, at about 116th street, driving south as I saw this to my south/southwest, toward some radio towers. The lights were drifting east.
