SCOTUS cases; how do the proceedings work?

i.e. re: the Prop 8 and DOMA cases scheduled for this week. Obviously these aren't regular trials Do arguments last only one day, or can they go on for several days? Do witnesses ever testify, or is it just the two lawyers arguing before the justices? Basically is it just opening arguments and closing arguments, and the justices ask questions in between?
