Triangular shaped crafts and blue ball of light near Kettleman City and Coalinga California

While driving back north on Interstate 5 from a family trip to Disneyland, my wife and I noticed some strange objects in the sky just as the sun was setting between Kettleman City and Coalinga. The first object appeared very high in the western sky and looked to be a test missle (Im assuming) of some sort...two more of these were seen some time later.

What really caught our eye was the triangular shaped craft with three large lights...one in the center and one at each of the tips of the 'wings'. This object came VERY close to the ground and 'disappeared' and reappeared several times while making some rather acrobatic movements. This was unlike any plane Ive ever witnessed and cropdusters do NOT make these sort of movements.

A few minutes later a bright blue single light came across from the hills in the West at a VERY high rate of speed to east ultimately out of sight.

I'm not sure what they are testing in those hills...but these were some very strange phenomena.
