V, Shapes with trails, then lights at corner making out a square in the sky, flashing, then rapidly moving to the center of the square

At approximately 1 am on Monday, December 13th, in the Western sky away from Washington DC, several objects appeared in the skies above Arlington/Falls Church. In the beginning, one could see a V shaped trail that moved at a speed much faster than a commercial/military type plane. Moments later, in same area, one saw several lights flash, circle, and them move out in formation. The lights would appear -- one in each corner of a square, and then move to the center, circle around each other in the center of the square, and then move back. This occurred over a period of 45 minutes. I could only say that the only reason I saw this was because my friend also witnessed the same thing...but in Falls Church. He called me around 12:30 am to tell me to go outside and see if I am seeing the same thing he was.
