Search lights??with no apparent origin from ground.

Early evening my daughter arrived at my house at 6:30pm. She called me out to see what appeared to be grand opening spot lights but there was no beam from the ground and no such local event. My granddaughter and I came out and the 3 of us thought it looked like a spinning disc that may have been up to a mile wide above the thin cloud cover. There appeared to be 4 individual lights evenly spaced that were moving in a circular pattern one time around then moved toward the center and appeared to cross over each other then back out to the perimeter and circled around again in a repeating pattern. We watched for about 5 minutes then went back inside.When my daughter checked again around 8:30pm they were gone. Had it been a grand opening it would have been still going on. We were not going to report this, but I recieved an E-mail from about Dec.7 or 8 in which a very similar sighting occured in S.Carolina on Dec.5. I found it strange that we witnessed what seem to be the exact same thing 2 days earlier.
