at least 4 kite-shaped bright, stationary objects over Portsmouth, RI

I see at least 4 kite-shaped objects, as if they had a small tail, in the sky. Not blinking, and not moving. Some very bright, some smaller and less bright. Looking with the naked eye, they appeared to be one (star) color; then with binoculars, they seem to be mostly star colored, but with 3 or 4 bright yellowish-orangey orbs on their lower portions.

Friends feel they are not stars because they are not blinking, and not satellites because they are not moving. I had only seen one at first, and the other people who saw it thought it might be a planet, but the shape is like a diamond/kite pattern, so doesn't look like a planet to me.

We are all lay-observers, but often look at the night sky as we are on boats in a marina, with few lights disturbing the view.
