light that changed in # and color from 1-4 lights and from yellow-orange-green/blue.

i was looking in a south/easterly direction (more easterly) and i saw what appeared to be a the light of a flashlight coming down the hill twards me. slow moveing kinda drifting from side to side as if maybe trying to find a path through the briars. i went inside and got my son. when we got back the light was above the treeline higher up on the hill. it changed color from yellowish,to orange,to bluish green and back to yellow. the color change took place slowly and over the entire time we observed it. my son told me to get the binoculars and we looked at it that way. when i was looking i saw two lights that were like a car maybe on it's side? there was a light between/connecting them. then they slowly joined back as one. i passed the nochs to my son and he saw it turn into three lights in a triangle formation. then a neighbore came over and he saw 4 lights in a straight line. it kept changeing shape and # of lights and color. all very slowly and graduly it m! oved more south. by midnight it was farther away looked like a very large star (maybe 4 times the size of a star)i took a picture with my cell phone and when i zoomed in it resembled a cluster of lights.
