3 witness a bright star like light at first hover, and then transform into a multi-lighted object which went out of view.

Located in the historic neighborhood of Corn Hill, 3 of us went out on the upper porch for a cigarette last night. It was about 9:30 when we went out and we enjoyed the cigarette and layed out to a nice view of the night sky. After about ten min. I noticed, a VERY bright, what appeared to be a star overhead and commented that the star must be a planet or something. I was so impressed by this apparent star, that I decided to take a picture with my cellphone. For some reason the phones touchscreen wouldn't react. At that point my two friends, jumped up and commented that it started to move! The light now seemd to be an object, which emitted two lesser lights of amber and yellow. Silently went in the southeast direction out of view. Tbe three of us, were in amazement. This was the first sighting for two of us, and the third person commented that this wasn't his first sighting.
