ufos in formation both stationary and moving, over columbus ohio 8:45 pm

We were lying on a sleeping bag with a tarp under it waiting for clintonville (metro columbus fireworks. 8:35pm. still daylight. we had very good binoculars with us. one object appeared, round, high up, very obviously not an airplane. we watched it through binocs it changed color and moved slowly aross the sky NW to SE perhaps 15 degrees then returned and was stationary. we would estimate this object to have been at 8000-9000 feet. it continued to change color red blue yellow. then three more identical ones appeared just southeast of where the stationary one was, and the three were in a perfect triangular formation. identical in size and shape to the first one, and changing color. very obviously a formation. we watched this through binoculars for at least two-three minutes. then all four moved southeast, the three staying in formation and the first one off behind. they then moved to a higher altitude and were no longer visible. a number of people saw this. we dont know if anyone else watched it through binoculars. one of us is an MD one of us owns a financial advisory company.
