20+ fast moving objects in the span of about an hour, upstate NY, 7/2/04

The objects we (mother, two teenaged sons) saw were going from an east to west direction, going at a very fast speed, way more than the average commercial airliner. They had blinking lights, most of which were 3, white, and circular, and then a red one came on and off, in a diamond pattern(three whites in the front, and red in the back). There were also 2 constant white lights at the back of the aircraft. We observed as many as 20-25 of these over the course of about an hour. Very clear night, full moon, all very visible. They would usually go in parallel lines from east to west, normally in pairs of some distance apart. One was seen going straight up out of the west sky, rather than toward us and overhead. It did this at a very rapid speed, more than the others going from west to east. We were under the impression we were possibly watching military aircrafts until we saw the one going in a totally unpredicatable pattern. No sounds were heard.
