Object with three, bright red lights came out of object with three bright white lights.

I was in my back yard at 1:10 am CDT helping my daughter check on her turtle in the pond. I looked up at the western sky while talking to my daughter and noticed three, bright white lights in a horizontal row flying slowly to the west which I assumed was an airplane. Something seemed strange about the lights - they were too big and too bright for a plane - so I watched it while talking with my daughter about her turtle. Suddenly three bright red lights in a row came from the left side of the object with the three white lights and flew quickly off to the south. The object or three bright red lights flew off at a speed faster than any airplane would fly. When I first saw the one object "split" into two objects, I froze in disbelief. My 13 year old daughter asked me what was wrong and I told her what happened. She saw the two objects as they flew away. There were no flashing lights on either object. The objects were a little larger than the diameter of a dime held at arm's length. Both objects flew low and along the flight paths as planes that are landing at DFW Airport and that's why I thought the first object WAS a plane...until it split into two objects (I estimate the objects would have been over Lake Lewisville at the time they seemed to "split" into two objects - about 6 miles away). These were not two planes crossing paths as I was looking straight at the first object and there were no other planes or lights in the area when the red lights suddenly emerged from the left side of the first object. I heard no sound but probably wouldn't hear any sound from that distance anyway. Right after I lost sight of both objects due to the trees I saw a bright flash of light like a beam of light coming from the ground to the north west of the objects but I only saw it once. I stood outside watching the area for another ten minutes but did not see any more flashes of light or anything unusual. Exactly two years ago on June 7, 1997 I saw a large, crescent moon-shaped UFO only a little to the north of what I saw tonight. I have seen flashes of light come from the ground in that area before (mostly lake and open fields there) as well as a circle of light that appeared on the ground with no originating source above. About two weeks after I saw the UFO on June 7th, my daughter and I saw something flash/explode about 1/2 mile due north of our back yard - it lit up the whole northern sky. Within 5 minutes of the flash/explosion, a helicopter arrived from the west and circled the area with two bright beams of light alternately circling and landing for over an hour seeming to search the ground for something (video taped it). I have a master's degree in counseling/psychology, past president-director of two UFO organizations. I am now an independent investigator/researcher of UFO and related phenomena.
