Motherships and armada in California skies

I got a phone call from a friend who claimed they saw a bunch of small ufos and one large mother ship, I thought they were bs-ing me but they had it on DVD after recording in on thier digital video camera. I went to check it out. We watched the film at regular speed the first time and saw several little specks appear and disappear too fast to see what they were. We slowed the video down to a crawl and watched several small flying craft, that looked a lot like flying oreo cookies.

A few seconds later this large "line" of lights showed up, the way the light hit it a few times made it go from translucent to kind of a plasma looking thing, all that was really clear were the lights. using zoom, we were able to see it was rotating, and the lights were actually pale shades of green pink and yellow, alternating as it spun around. It didnt fly straight, rather jumped around, the smaller craft looked like they were trying to "stir" up the air to keep the larger craft concealed. After examing the film, we decided to go outside and look at the space it happened in, at exactly 5 am in the morning of the 17th, we saw it appear on the horizon, again the way the sun hit it, it seemed to "uncloak" for a few moments, there appeared to be a shape to this of an egg, the lights going around the middle with the small end towards the top and maybe a quarter of the egg at the big end out the bottom, it was like looking into water. there were a lot of "sparks" that appeared in the sky, thats how fast they were, they only looked like sparks to the naked eye. again we got out the camera and tried to catch some of it on film. Then a Second large ship appeared behind the first one, they both moved in a south east direction across the sky, the smaller ships were like a whold armada flying around the larger ones, dissappearing and reappearing again, it appeared like they would go in and out of the big one, but you couldnt see it enter it, only where it would appear again at the top of the big one. I only know I was akeptical of what was told to me about what they had filmed the morning before, also at exactly 5 am. And that in the first light of the day, with the sun coming up, it did something to the way they were able to conceal themselves, this was not a jet trail, and were not falling stars. And it seems they have a habit of hanging out over the top of the power plant at 5 am. There seemed to be a distortion of the sky around where they were, magnetic field possibly? My friend has the camera and the footage taken of this phenomena, I am still just flabbergasted that it was still in the same area two days in a row.
