Three bright red cylinders changing to very bright white lights before disappearing at high speeds

Initially, there was a very loud low rumble that soon showed twin red balls moving very fast for several seconds before disappearing very suddenly in a northwesterly direction. After about 5-10 minutes the sound returned and there was a red cylinder shaped object in the north. Suddenly, the cylinder became a very bright light like a search light had been turned on. This was answered by another brigh light in the south and another in the west. These lights stayed on for 10-20 seconds in a stationary position and then suddenly all three became red balls moving very quickly and disappearing to the west. After another 10-15 minutes the same red cylinder was observed very high in the sky moving from west to east and the white light appeared three more times but at a very high elevation.
