6 red and white strobing lights travling in the eastern sky above Las Vegas

My son was outside, when he called for me to come look at a light in the northeastern sky, I walked out to see and found a red/white strobing light moving east towards frenchman mountain and the lake mead area, At first I thought it might be a helicopter, but its speed seemed too fast, I went back into the house and was called out again to see more of the same lights in the southeast sky travling in the same direction, this time there were 3 in a vee formation and two others on each side in the distant, They were all the same red and white strobing lights, We watched as they headed over and behind the mountains behind us, My 18 year old daughter and another 18 year old witnessed this sight as well as myself and 14 year old son, I tried to take digital pics and am unsure if they will show up for the distance the lights were at.
