Light Formations

My husband and I went outside to smoke our last cigarette before bed and I was looking at how many stars were out, then I noticed one of them was moving. I might not have taken notice of this except there were no planes supposed to be in the sky after the events of the day. We initally noticed one light that was white and small, at first glance it looked like a star. It was due west. It was flashing not twinlking, one single white light then we could see three vertical lights, two white and the one in the center was red, the lights were in a row vertically. It appeared to drop very quickly from what I assume to be a very high altitude and moved from side to side, almost insect like in it's movements. This is what raised the hairs on our necks, it was not swamp gas, a harrier jet or military planes, it's movements were like nothing I've ever seen. Ever. It continued to come down all the while flashing it's red light every so often. Finally it got to be too low in the tree line to see. Then after watching it for so long I noticed movement in the sky to the northwest, my husband and I identified this second object same as the first, it was moving in sequence with another light and another. We made out three triangular formations in the sky comming from the north and going west. Each point of the triangle was a seperate moving and flashing entity. Then it started to change into a circular pattern and the second light began the same descent pattern as the first. This one appeared to be larger than the first, there was a quick white flash from it that went towards the other lights, we could tell they were headed away from us (west). Eventually they became to small to watch and were gone. There was no sound. Just as an after thought, at one point while watching the first light it became three lights and moved as if it went upside and back, more than once. It was just the way it moved that set it apart from anything logical and reasonable. My husband and I are not the type of people who go looking for this or frequent UFO websites but this was real and not of us.
