craft rotating in an arch with 3 bright, rapid blinking lights.

Craft moved west in an arch motion towards the east right after sunset. It had 3 blinking white lights. I believe it to have been 1 craft, although it was translucent. It rotated during the eastward arch movement, and the light blinked more rapidly until it disappeared. It seemed to be bigger than 100 yards in width. 3 other people were looking up at the sky with their phones at the time, which made me look up as well. After it disappeared, I saw aboht 3 helicopters flying in the area the UFO left.
