Three orange fireball like objects over Gilbert AZ

One orange what appeared to be a fireball moving East to West quickly but under cloud level. Object was large as compared to Jet on final approach to Sky Harbor.

!0 min later two more appeared in a staggered formation.

The first went sharply from East west direction to SW while the second continued West.

Orange light dimmed then brightened then faded out. I could barely make out a shape but would say triangular and totally silent.

I have never witnessed anything like this before so it was the weirdest thing to see.

I didn't have time to video it unfortunately.

I am an aeronautical engineer and was out locking my truck at the time.

I thought it could be an F-35 but no exhaust plume seen or sound heard.
