Light in the sky, followed by three, different crafts.

My friend and I were sitting around a campfire in his backyard. This is a rural, wooded area. It ws nearly 3am when off in the woods beyond the yard, I noticed the sky was starting to brighten. I thought this odd, and questioned my friend that it seemed awfully early to be getting light. It started off dimly, but slowly began to brighten, only in this one area. The sky was clear, with many stars visible. After 20 min- 1/2 hour, my friend and I noticed that apparent beams of light were now pointing skyward from this one location. (Think, Hollywood, movie/searching lights, the kind that point straight up). I questioned him again, to be sure that he was seeing the same thing I was. After a few minutes these beams started to fade, and for the remainder of an hour the lights slowly faded altogether, the sky then becoming dark like the rest of the night sky. We thought this odd, but didn't know what to make of it, and went back to our campfire. A few minutes later, we noticed an object in the sky, I made a point of saying, that it seemed to be moving awfully quickly. As it approached it became apparent it was diamond shaped, made up of four, large, bright, unblinking beams. As it sped across the sky over our heads, my friend mentioned how an object moving as fast as this should break the sound barrier making a sonic boom, or some sort of noise, yet none could be heard. Right behind this object was another, following on the exact same course, moving just as quickly. Only, this craft had two large red lights, and two large green lights. While they were travelling above us, other regular aircraft were visible, and there was no comparison between the size, speed, etc. These were no regular crafts. They were big, silent, low flying and extremely fast. As we watched, I held my friend's arm awestruck, not able to say anything. After they disappeared we sat questioning, trying to rationalize what we had seen. We were nearly ready to go to bed, when 15 minutes later a third object, flying so quickly, that I got out of my chair, and followed it on foot across the lawn, and had a hard time keeping sight of it, flew overhead. This one was the most shocking of all, it had rotating, pulsing, multi-colored lights. The lights followed no pattern, and the craft seemed to rotate. As I said it was overhead and gone so quickly, I had to run across the lawn to keep sight of it. After this third craft, we were quite shaken, and retreated to the house. We have discussed what we saw numerous times since then, and still it is shocking. That night I had made a simple diagram of the first, diamond shaped craft, and had noted the approx. times that we saw them.
