blinking multicolor light with three orange lights emerging

I was turning on to Bookout Rd south of Tularosa and notice a bright star in the east over the Sacramento mountains. It was blinking and very large, so I thought it was a planet. As I approached the 45-degree turn to head north. I saw an orb slightly smaller than the bright star emerge from the star. It was bright orange. It went perfectly horizontally north of the bright blinking star. It paused, then a duplicate range light appeared from it and went in alignment with the star and the orange light. The final orange light emerged from the second orange light/orb, and they held a straight line for several minutes. Then I tried to get a picture but couldn’t because there was a car driving towards me on the road. the orange orbs separated an equal distance from each other and the bright star(?). They moved in sequence further apart from each other and started to go bright and dim. All the orange lights but the bright star-like light began breaking formation and! I had moved up trying to get a clear picture.
