6 bright star like objects moving fast in the night sky

At approximately 9:45pm on 7-10-2013 I stepped outside to smoke a cigarette and make a phone call and looked up to admire the night sky when I saw what I thought at first was a satellite heading South East in the night sky.

I noticed the “satellite was much brighter than others I had seen and was also traveling much faster than others I have witnessed. Just as I was thinking all of this it quickly changed directions and began travelling south while picking up speed. It was very bright and the light pulsated twice before coming to a complete stop then lit up extremely bright then disappeared.

Just as it disappeared two more similar objects appeared in the sky but this time they were headed from the west heading east and were flying one directly behind the other but displaying the same flight pattern as the previous object.

These objects were also quite fast and ended changing direction again to end up in the same approximate location as the first object! when they too came to a complete stop, lit up extremely bright then disappeared. All together there were six objects all identical to the first and all stopped at the same approximate location in the night sky before lighting up very bright then disappearing.

I’m not sure what these objects were but they definitely were not conventional aircraft and definitely were not satellites.
