Six objects move westerly across the California night sky

We we camping in a remote "non-car camping" area with no un-natural light sources within a 20 mile radius. Just as we started to go to bed I was looking at stars to the east and suddenly there was a VERY bright flash of light. This light was not accompanied by any sound and seemed within decent range of where we were camped. The light was very bright and then quickly formed into four (4) distinct circular shaped lights: two on one side and two on the other. The new lights were shaped in a very strange, hard to explain way: they were very well formed light sources and the light from them stayed in a round shape as it came shone out from the craft (in fact we never really saw a "craft" per se).

This object flew at a much quicker pace than any of the airplanes we'd see that night and moved towards the west. About 6 seconds into al this the lights went off and became a "pinpoint" kind of light...looking a bit like a satellite does. It then moved VERY fast westerly and then completely disappeared.

All of this really intrigued me so I stayed up for another two hours and saw a total of six (6) of them all moving in the same direction. Some just quick, small points of light and others looking like fluttering wings made of light...very blinky and fluttery and fast in their light. Two of them changed colors from white to red to blue and back, but most were just white. After a couple of hours of this I went to bed perplexed and very intrigued.
