Four very bright yellow stationary lights in a 20 degree arc, fading out then popping up in a different position.

I looked out of the window towards the north-east and saw four very bright stationary yellow lights. They were slightly above the hills in a clear sky. As I watched, the lights alternated fading out and then popping on again in a different position. The original formation was about a 20 degree arc. I grabbed my binoculars and ran out on the porch, focused on them and they seemed to be partial circles of light with one straight line coming out of each. But far away, even with magnification still about the size of a pencil eraser. As they each faded, it was like they got farther away, very rapidly. Seemed to be some faint "vapor trails" drifting off of them, but not like any plane I've ever seen. Finally it was just two, then one, then that one "receded". I'm loading up the video camera tonight so this time I'll be ready!
