10-12 satellites? in formation 10 degrees apart easterly

I was attempting to spot comet Atlas in between Ursa Major and Cassiopeia at around 2035 hrs on 03/29 with Nikon Monarch binocs. While observing Ursa and visually tracking towards Cass, I noticed, what i thought was an ordinary satellite, very common. Arms fatigued, I dropped, and looked up. I noticed another satellite moving on the same path at about 10 degrees. I have been watching the skys for 30 years, it raised a flag. I soon noticed more satellites following the same path at the same speed, at satellite speed, at approx 10 degrees apart.

I notified my wife, she came out of the house and witnessed the same objects moving easterly at the same speed in the same position, and from what we could tell, the same distance apart. I witnessed about 10 to 12 objects. Interesting, we noticed a satellite moving southerly on the left side of Ursa close to 90 degrees after the group past.

Visually, it looked like satellites, through binocs, small orange dots reflecting from a setting sun below horizon.
