Craft with 4 lights videoed at 4th of July fireworks.

I was watching the firework display at the city rec center, facing west, and just before the finale started, I noticed a few aircraft behind the fireworks display. One was clearly a plane, and disappeared into the clouds but the other appeared as a group of four lights and was motionless, other than the two lights closest to me which were flashing at a consist (sic. Constant) rate.

During the finale, the craft moved east toward me, and then hovered to the south of me. At this point I started taking video on my phone.

After hovering for a couple minutes it drifted south, and then seemed to drop elevation at a rapid rate. As it reached the house line, it disappeared behind a house and then I caught it briefly between two houses before it was gone.
