large bright yellow light and four smaller red,green and blue flashing lights in the eastern sky

Woke up by our dog's bark early am i went and got a glass of water cutting thru our back patio and a light cought my eye and it wasent moving, it was way to early for planes to be flying into San Diego. It was in the Eastern sky and it was bright and large with shoots stemming from it and there were four others (smaller or much further away) with red, green and blue flashing lights.I wanted to explain it off to planes but i woke my wife and she saw thje same thing and asked about the rays shooting out from the large yellow object she got nervous and dident want to watch any longer after a few m,oments loking thru binoculars. They all stayed motonless in the early eastern sky till the clouds blocked my view. I really wanted to right it off to planes or satellites but we never saw them before or since that early morning.

large yellowish light in eastern sky

On or around 4:15am i was awakened by one of our dogs barking, i went out onto the back patio and dident notice anything to be concerned about. I got a glass of water and headed back thru the back patio to our bed room and a large yellowish light cought my eye i wrote it off to an airplane untill i got to the bed side and it was 4:21am no planes would fly around here at that time. I went back out and looked up at the eastern sky and the light was still there i watched for a few moments and it dident seem to be moving, I woke my wife and asked her whats that? She got up, she dident know we both rubbed our eyes trying to get a clearer non sleepy view but we both saw this large bright yellowish light with kind of light rays protruding from it and saw four more objects in an apparenet furhter distance they seemed to have a red, green and blue flash to them. We watched for a while thru binoculars they stayed motionless the dawn was starting to break but the fog line moved in about forty mins. after i first saw them. Any explanation to what it was? I wanted to believe they were satellites but we never saw them before or since.
