flshing lights, darting around very quickly.

I noticed out my window bright blinking lights in the sky East. There were several (5-6) lights at least one red and the others white as if on a plane. The lights were blinking very rapidly and the object was moving up down, side to side and back and forth. I thought it's strange movement must be caused by going in and out of clouds, but I realized there were stars all around so there were no dense clouds. The object moved in this manner along the south sky from east to west, then I watched it go over the house from the west north. It moved along straight like a "normal" aircraft as it went from the west, northward at which point I lost sight of it. Although I could not say the shape of this object, the lights flashed in a "sequence" or "formation" that gave the appearance of a diamond shape.
