Three Objects Looking Like Planets Moving in fast and odd directions:

My wife and I were sitting out on the deck enjoying the nice nite weather. My wife noticed what she first thought to be Mars and we both looked at it. I noticed a second object and this one had a moon above it. All of a sudden, the moon started to move around what we thought was a planet, and darted off southeast at great speed and upward towards 11'O CLOCK. Then the craft it was orbiting took off after. Still the first object remains in the same position. About 15 to 20 seconds later it shot off going straght back, also at a fantistic speed. As we continue to look in this direction, the third craft returns traveling back to the same position wtih another one following or chaseing it. We had a tele-scope out at this time. My wife manage to get these two ships in view and we both saw as they departed the one following had a row of three lights across it, this one flew off again to the southeast as the other shot back in the direction it came from. The objects were redish-orange in color and round in shape. In the telescope the one viewed was cigar shaped with three white lights. This all took place in the seaside town of Sea Ranch, California. (116 Miles north of San Francisco) Looking South-West down the Pacific coast towards San Francisco.
