Green and Red Lights hovering, zig-zagging above San Marcos, California July 4, 2104

My boyfriend and I saw two aircraft of some sort with red and green lights. The green lights were blinking but the red were steady. We could not see the actual aircraft, just the lights. We were at Bradley Park in San Marcos, CA with many other people, for the 4th of July fireworks show. Everyone was watching the sky in front of us (they were shooting the fireworks off slightly to the south) and there were two sets of these lights above us and to the right (west) and left (east) of us. They seemed to be cruising along normally and then changed directions. They changed directions,zig zagging randomly, and hovered seemingly perfectly still for a long time. The moon was about half and it was bright. At one point they both were hovering, and then the one to our right moved, I couldn't see due to some smoke in the sky, and then when the smoke cleared it was gone from sight. Since it was only smoky for a few quick seconds, it seemed odd to me that the lights were gone from my sight completely. Then the one to our right started moving away from us, toward the west.

It could have been some type of military aircraft since there is Navy and Marines here. But the movements were not like anything I've ever seen in person or in movies; it captured my attention and I watched the lights instead of watching the fireworks show.
