Very large bright lights, equal brightness and distance moved at high speed across desert sky. NOT A PLANE.

My family was outside on our deck. The sun had gone down about 45 minutes earlier. It was a beautiful cool autumn evening. We had been looking at the stars. We saw a strange large and very bright light to the southwest of our town. At first it was one light that got brighter as seconds passed. From the first ball of light came a second ball of light, equally as bright. From the second ball of light came a third ball of light equal distance from the other two, equal brightness. From the third ball of light came a fourth, same exact distance and brightness. The brightness became brighter kind of like a filament in a lightbulb. Then they shut off in the same order that they appeared. This happened a few times and then it was dark. They reappeared as groups of two in a distance of atleast 40 miles from the first sighting within 20 to 30 seconds. When the lights went out, the lights reapeared at the first location in a group if two. The lighting group became brighter until it reached the full brightness, then shut off. The location switched back and forth for aporximatley 25 to 30 minutes. What we saw, if it was all connected groupings was atleast one mile long. I am not a good judge of height at night. The best way to explain it would be if you see one of the first low evening stars in the sky it was between that star and the ground level. We have no idea what we saw.
