Multiple UFO Sightings Houston, Texas

I was sitting outside with a friend when we notice a police helicopter circling around us (it continued to do so for about 10min.) Then we saw a triangular craft with a bright white light in the middle with smaller lights throughout the craft. I could pefectly see the shape of it. It was moving slowly and ackwardly and moved out of sight. Then we saw what was the shape of a twin rotor army helicopter, but it was making a low drone noise and had two very bright red lights. When one light blinked the other would go out and visa versa. On this one, it could just have been an army helicopter. But, the lights were really strong...not the normal airplane/helicopter light. Either way, why would there just be one flying relatively low to the ground? Then 10-20min. later we saw another triangular craft like the one before, but it soon disappeared. And about 5min. after that we saw the strangest thing yet. A group of blinking lights that were blinking really excitedly. Going from dim to dark as they blinked. And it would jump from one place to another and make really weird flight patterns. Sometimes it would go dim and then go really bright and go up and down really fast and then appear somewhere else. (I have a short video of it where you can see it jump, but at this point the ship had stopped blinking. Where do I send the video?) Then it started turning left then right in a smooth zig zag type of pattern. It seemed to have a shape while it was turning, but it's hard to explain the shape. I'd say it's closest to the "chevron"sign. We also saw a bright white orbish object flying around it for a little bit. Then it started moving back and forth, then disappeared. It's been a crazy night.
