Fair enough it is new years day lol.
But assuming that the OP judged the speed and altitude correctly could it remain alight at that speed and height?

Crazy. I never heard of flying Chinese lanterns, and I am part Chinese. Now, I think that's what they were. I probably misjudged the distance and speed because I assumed they were aircraft, so they probably were a lot closer, than I assumed They were really high, though. High enough to disappear behind clouds.
The equilateral triangle formation could easily have been a coincidence.
I want to make one now, and fly it on Chinese New Year.
Thanks everyone for helping me solve this.
