3 odd moving diamond shape lights appear in Sky over Summerlin, NV on 9/17/16

At approx. 8:33 pm PST on 9/17/16, I was walking my Dog. I happened to glance up In the sky to look at the full moon. While doing so, I caught a glimpse of , what I first thought was just a bright star. I noticed it moving a bit and thought it may just be a flickering star. The light moved left, up down, then right, then back up slow at first then quick patterns of movement. I went back into my house to grab my phone to try and catch a picture / video and I took several. A couple finally came out to also walk their dog and I asked them to look up at what I was seeing to confirm I was indeed seeing a moving light. I have this on video but it is hard to see it with my cell phone camera but it is visible in the video and in the pictures if you expand them a bit.

At that moment, one of the other individuals saw another object just ahead of the first object that appeared red in color and also seemed to be moving about in a strange pattern, and then another bright light appeared to the left of the first one and they formed together a sort of pattern in the sky. All 3 lights seemed to have the same side to side/up – down quick movements then would at times be stationary. The shape of this object was a center light then almost a point on either side (which is why I selected Diamond shape) .

I have not ever seen anything like this in the sky, definitely could not explain it. I looked up to see if any other reports had been made and someone did report lights the Summerlin area on 9/15 and in Blue Diamond area on 9/11.

Thank You.
