Bright light formation moving erratically near Tucson, AZ

From Quail Creek County Club in Sahaurita, AZ, looking north.

At approximately 3:45 a.m. I observed a light in the NE sky that grew brighter and then was moving erratically. At first I thought it must be a helicopter but then 2 more lights appeared with alternating white and red lights. They moved around each other too closely and erratically to be helicopters. I observed for a long period of time, at least 20 minutes, and more lights appeared and then disappeared at various locations, moving erratically, around each other and then suddenly extremely fast. They were far to the east of the Tucson airport and no planes were landing or taking off at that time in the morning (I can see the planes arriving and departing from my location). They moved toward the east and the moving lights appeared and disappeared at various locations but always at least one visible until I observed one with a bright light that appeared to stand still then all of the sudden at least 4 others app! eared in a straight line to the east of it. Within seconds they lit up sequentially (like fire crackers) and then they were gone or at least there were no more lights.
