Sighting Details

I was looking in the north for meteors, when I turned south and saw three bright objects in a triangle shape within a few degrees of each other. I was perplexed, as I could not identify these stars. The didn't twinkle, so I figured one was a planet, but I knew the planets there at that point. By the time I realized that these were not stars, they were dimming as if they passed into the shadow of the Earth, or like an Iridium flare satellite dimming. These were, if I remember correctly, in the bottom left corner of Ophiucus/Serpens Cauda. They were within 3 degrees of each other. I did not see a shape within these lights, only the lights. I went online to check to see which satellites these were so I could brag about it, but upon checking online databases of satellite passes, nothing matches up. These went out at the exact same time. Conversely, a satellite I perceived in the northern sky and assumed was the ISS did turn out to be the ISS. I hope someone else reported this, as I'd like to determine what's gone on here.
