Missing man V formation

While stepping out in my back yard for a smoke, I always look up into the night sky, usually say my hellos to Orion this time of year, then I suddenly saw a movement to the side of me.

It was a 3-1 V formation, one lead, 2 on one side and 1 on other side, moving North-Northeast.

At first sight thought "odd flock of birds", then instantly realized they were not birds. Moving much faster then birds though at what appeared to be same altitude as birds would fly.

Size not overly large, which gave first thought to being birds.

Quickly surmised sighting, four oval/disk shapes, moving way to fast to be birds, silent, no deviation from orientation to each other, no motion other than a straight trajectory, perfect flawless formation and consistent speed.

Light enough whitish hue to be seen but not bright, almost a stealth kind of look. As they passed over the house I moved to continue watching them but I could no longer see them.

With a head movement from left shoulder to right shoulder the whole event lasted no more than 4 seconds.
