small bright lights traveling in straight line with red trails

This occured wednesday night within a few hours after sunset (exact time unknown) at Burning Man. I was under the influence of marijuana and kava kava and most of my companions were also intoxicated. What I remember seeing was a series of small lights (colors?) equally spaced and traveling at the same speed. There was a red trail behind each light with each trail ending just before the next light. They were moving much slower, and lasted much longer than any meteor I have seen. I heard several other people at the event talking about the lights that night so there were probably a few hundred witnesses.
