A blinking red light chased by two smaller lights

As I do not smoke inside my house, I stepped outside to have my last cigarette of the evening. A fast-blinking, red light not much below the big dipper caught my attention. At first I assumed it was just a planet, but as I watched it the light would disappear for a second or two and then reappear in another place in the sky, though not far from where it disappeared. Also, two distinctly different lights, each an off-white with a faint, bluish tint would randomly streak past the red light from different positions in the sky as though trying to catch it, each leaving a faint haze behind it which dissipated quickly soon after. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, so I called to my wife to come downstairs and outside to look at what I was seeing. Using telephone lines and the big dipper as guides I showed her where to look in the sky, and to my amazement she began to describe exactly what I was seeing! I went inside to get my video camera, but the lights in the sky were not very bright and are consequently not visible on the video tape. I watched for a total of approximately 10 minutes before the lights stopped all together. My wife and I are not sure of what we saw, but we do know that we did not see a planet, a meteor, an airplane or any other "normal" aircraft. No other object which either of us has ever seen in our lifetimes has been capable of moving in any way even remotely resembling that of the objects we saw tonight. I hope someone, somewhere, also saw this and successfully captured it on video tape...
