Sighted during the major meteor shower last year.

My roomates and I were up, off and on all night and early morning to watch the major meteor showers that were occuring, and I can't remember what month that was occurring, to watch all the "falling stars". I went outside in my backyard about 4:30 a.m. to get another look as it was so facinating, when I noticed an object moving through the sky very quickly and it was white in the front and had an orange/bluish contrail. I found this interesting as it wasn't falling from the sky, it was moving perpendicular to the Earth. Then, I saw dark objects following it. And how I saw this was due to the fact they crossed in front of stars. One of my roomates came out and saw the objects following the colorful object. I don't know what we saw, but after having something else in 1993, I believe it was not of Earth.
