Three dull yellow lights in the sky!!!

At around 1814 I was out on my balcony smoking with my wife and was looking at the night sky as I always do when ever I go out. I happen to look over in the area across from my apartment towards the stadium, and noticed what seemed like a bright landing light on an airplane over the horizon. At first I thought it was just that because it was not moving really fast or turning rather just sitting in one place. Then as I am watching this light waiting to see it turn for the glide slope for it's FAP into SD Airport another light came up from below the horizon at least from what I could see to be the horizon with a building in my view. Anyway another light came up same color and size as the one I am watching, and moved along side of the first light. These lights were a dull yellowish color not blinking or turning other colors. So with the two lights now side by side, the first one moved up and away towards the 2 o'clock position at about 1,000 feet agl, and not fast at all. It was kind of like a bump and go method the second light just stayed where the first object was while the first object moved across the horizon. Now I did not and could not see any visible beacon lights on any of the objects and was to far away to hear sounds of engines, but they were perfect in size and remained a constant dull yellow color. With the 1st object now moving away and the 2nd hovering in place, a third light of the same two I am watching moves to within about 25feet of the 2nd light and begins to hover along side. There were other IA flying all around the area some on FAP and others going to and from the costal area, but none towards these objects. I being foolish in my thinking said to myslef in my mind, I can see you and I know you are there and then I got freaked out. As soon as I said it the object I was looking at got real bright like it was flashing towards me and then all the lights were gone like as if someone turned the light swith off gone. I don't want people to think I am nuts I'm not, I am in th! e militray and know what to look for when spotting aircraft and the different types of aircraft we have. However I am suprised that I am the only one to report this as anyone who was looking up at the sky would have seen this as clear as day.
