Peculiar lights in the sky

I was with my wife, her sister, my brother-in-law, and their three children. We were in the condo where we were staying. It was about 9:30 in the evening.

The condo is on the fifth floor, overlooking the ocean. We just went out on the balcony for some air when we saw some peculiar lights out over the ocean. There was no noise and all the lights were the same configuration. They didn't appear to move but seemed to stay in the same place and blink on and off. The lights were arranged in a horizontal line in a set of three. They weren't very bright. The lights were an equadistance apart. They did seem to be at verying distance from us as some of the crafts (sets of light) seemed to be farther away or at least the lights were closer together like they would appear if the crafts were farther away. The lights were all the same color - white and it was quite dark and there was a high cloud cover so there were no stars. The lights (crafts) were spread out all across the sky at varying distances. I thought it could have been some kind of reflection or a peculiar bending of light but I couldn't see how it could be so widespread and appear to be at varying depths. The lights did blink on and off at the same time and while I thought that was important, I couldn't figure out what I was seeing. It went on for probably 45 minutes and then gradually faded away. There is probably some reasonable explanation but I couldn't see what it could be so I thought I would report it.
