Two occurrences of lights appearing to play leapfrog on eastern slope of Mt. Shasta

Three or four lights appeared to play leapfrog. At any given moment there were three stationary lights in the sky, however, as one light went out another light would instantly reappear just opposite the two remaining lights. I would estimate that the lights were about 20 to 30 yards apart from one another. The sequence occurred about five times for a period of about 10 seconds. It was a moonless night with the only nearby town far in the distance. The lights appeared to be less than two miles away and fairly near to the hilly horizon. On this night the lights were brighter than Mars and about the same color of yellow. We waited approximately 30 minutes and another event of the same phenomenon occurred in a distant location. This second occurrence was higher in the sky and at a different angle to the first. The leapfrog event continued about 5 times for a period of about 10 seconds. We were camping on the eastern slope of Mt. Shasta at an elevation of about 8000 feet.
