Three bright blue lights, fading to lighter blue, turning red when changing direction, flashing white when accelerating.

We were on our rooftop to watch the variety of Phoenix and surrounding area firework shows, and got more than we expected. We saw three bright blue lights, fading to lighter blue, turning red when changing direction, flashing white when accelerating. They looked to me to be playing with each other, turning around each other, chasing, diving and floating. At times the were out of sight due to tree tops, and we presumed they might have landed. This was observed facing South from South Scottsdale, they were probably flying over Tempe. At the time there was flight traffic in the area and fireworks shows. I have a photo depicting an airplane, the strange lights and fireworks. We spotted a fighter jet flying into the area, and the lights hid and remained hidden.
