Three extremely bright objects observed in various locations over the skies of Santa Fe and Los Alamos, New Mexico.

Last night as I was going to bed at 3:00 am I noticed an extremely bright light in the skies over the city of Santa Fe. My home is in the mountains and I have a very good view of both the city of Santa Fe and the city of Los Alamos. I observed this light for a while and noticed it seemed to have different colored lights flashing or something. I got out my binoculars, and observed that there were indeed different colored lights. It was too far away to observe the actual shape. The object at first appeared to be stationary over the city of Santa Fe. It did not appear to be moving at all. However over a course of approximately an hour and a half, it very slowly moved over the city of Los Alamos, then very slowly moved lower in the skies until it appeared to disappear behind a mountain in or behind Los Alamos. It went down not far from a red flashing light in the mountains, so I thought it might have to do with some sort of test or research going on in Los Alamos. During this same period of time, I also noticed two other very bright white objects which appeared to be either round or elipse shaped in two different locations in the skies over Santa Fe. Neither object appeared to be moving. Both were very far away. I observed an airplane during this period and compared the plane to these objects through my binoculars. The three unidentified objects bore NO resemblance to the plane. Two of the objects were still in the sky when I finally went to sleep at approximately 4 AM. All of these objects were lower in the skies than the stars. It was a very clear night. All of these objects were much brighter than the stars and were easy to distinguish from the stars due to their extremely bright lights and to the fact that they seemed at times to move, although VERY slowly. I have never made a UFO report before or seen a UFO. I am 52 years old, female, and co-owner and co-founder of a company. Prior to that, I was a top executive in a major ad agency for 20 years. I have never witnessed anything like this.
