6 orange reddish, flashing lights, slowly coming off the horizon joining in formation

Last night at about 8:30 p.m. is when the event took place. However let me start by saying the original object I observed has been in the sky for months. I first spotted it in March, looks like a bright star, only its strobing and blinking different colors. I grabbed my friends cheap telescope, got it in view, and once the object was in focus, I was shocked to see it was 4 lights in a straight line, evenly spaced(also nothing was flashing, as appose to out of focus). I was very surprised and exited, as I’m very into this type of thing, and always wanted to personally witness something. This got me very interested in this “star” , and anytime I’d be outside at night I’d look for it. As said, I’ve observed it for months now parked in the same spot moving across the sky with the rest of the stars, like nothing irregular(other than the strobing lights) and was there the whole time until yesterday. Sorry for the little pre -story but I felt it was necessary So last night around 8:15 I started walking to my buddy’s house to hang out, and as always when I’m walking, I look for my star. I take a look at it in the gaps between trees and houses. As I’m nearing my friends house I see there’s now 2 of the strobing stars next to each other. This other one hasn’t been there any other time I look. As I get to another gap where I can see the objects again, I notice they are now spaced farther apart. I’m all worked up now, and go sprinting to my friends house, I really didn’t want to be the only one to see this. My friend wasn’t home right then so I grabbed his neighbor to come out. Now there were three of these lights, flashing and pulsating an orangish reddish glow, all in a misshapen triangle form, with another one of the lights drifting up from the horizon to join the other three. Then there was a smaller triangular formation that looked almost identical in formation just smaller, slowly drift up from the horizon. At this point it was! me, my friends neighbor, and his wife and daughter.

Just then my friend pulled in his house, and my other friend who lives up the street came down, and then we had my 2 friends, and my friends mom and sister come look. At this point is when the objects started slowly dissipating. The lower, smaller triangle formation all dimmed slowly until they were gone, then what was left was the larger triangle formation. However now they were equidistant from each other, in a symmetrical triangle until they all slowly dimmed out. What I thought was interesting, was the fact that atleast the one light, I’ve observed for months, and the fact that last night I just watched this happen and now that light is gone, it‘s truly an awesome experience. A few details I forgot to put in, was that it was quite cloudy, and no stars we’re visible, these were the only visible lights in the sky. And the movement of the objects was all very slow, they slowly came up and they slowly disappeared. Hoping that others have seen this, maybe even got video, I! know my friends mom and nieghbor got a few pictures towards the end of it all, but a video would really be nice.
