Five to twelve celestial bodies flashing side to side (left to right) red, blue, blue/green, white

I have lived in Florida since 1992. Very close to the water south east coast. For years I have seen what I would always rationalize as stars. The image of flashing bodies of light all of which emit whit, red, green/blue flashes in each body. I am familiar with Jupiter and some of the other mention of celestial bodies that do this, however cannot find any documentation on the reports that I reviewed concerning the area of the south east coast of Florida. They can be seen in a clear sky and watching them at length of one to three hours they sometimes deminish and sometimes do not. The have no speeding movement however do have a formation. such as that one body forming an iscosoles (sp) triangle, semi circle bowl shape or two triangles, and also by "connecting" dots. I have seen them form a wave like the 'approximately' sign on a typewriter key. On several occasions laying on my back on the beach there are clusters of them up to the number of single lights, 12 forming all the designs I have mentioned. They are completely well defined as still compared to moving air craft, as I mentioned before they move quite slowly when they deminish as they are moving what appears to be away from me, or are easily shrouded by cloud cover but remain after the cloud is gone. All of them do sparkle as you have described as 'light hitting a diamond'. The colors are all the same with my eye anyway, red, green, green/blue white. they do flash however side to side. They do not have a starburst effect. They are easily seen with binoculars and the flash is side to side on all of them. (At one time there were five people with me a few years back as I brought it up to discussion and we planed the night watch and we were not disappointed. Three of the five have knowlege of constellations and none could not explain what we were seeing. This early morning my interest was sparked again walking my dog, there were five in a bowl shape formation each one from finger to finger viewing about 5 inches apart, all flashing as I have described. I know it is florida and was wondering are these weather satellites, communication sattelites? Or a larger perspective view of constellation formations that due to the etherial conditions of air, heat, gasses that they flash like this
