8 objects that began as “falling stars” whitish in color all perfectly aligned and spaced apart were observed

My wife and I were walking at 19:57 hours, admiring the crescent moon and Venus when I noticed what appeared to be a falling star glowing very white, however as it appeared to come into the atmosphere it stopped glowing and then began to look like a satellite in low orbit. It entered the sky from the southwest and was going northeast. After watching it for almost a minute and not observing any red or green lights typical of aircraft, we noticed another “falling star” that appeared to be coming into the atmosphere. It was another object exactly the same shape and color (whitish like Venus) and following the first object in the same path. After another minute or so, we noticed another “falling star” (ie lit up the surrounding sky in white light). This continued until we counted 8 objects in total. All equally spaced apart except the 8th object, which was a little farther back in distance. After the fourth one, I called my son and had him step out on his back p! orch, and he observed the final four objects come “into the atmosphere”. We heard no sounds or nor saw any other color lights. They did not blink, just displayed a whitish color until they disappeared in the northeast sky.
