UFO's seen over O'Hare International Airport. at 1:30 AM 8/5/01

I've been using he J-Track 3d software to track satelites and saw one would be passing over soo so i went outside to look for it. I saw it pass, but as it did I saw what I believed to be another satelite but it was moving much faster and coming in from the west and heading east. I started watching it when it changed course slightly north. It was late so I thought I was tired and seeing things until it stopped and sat there for about 30 secs before it started moving again. This time due north and with a burst of speed I've never seen before. From my perspective it was not over O'hare airport. If I had tape measurer and held it up above my head with the sky behind it I would say it moved 4 feet in a flash. Then it seemed to be hiding behind some clouds over O'hare airport, darting in and out of a hole in one of the clouds. After about 5 minutes of this I ran and grabbed my camcorded to try to record it. I woke up my wife and asked her to come out but she was half asleep and told me I was dreaming so I ran outside with the camcorder. I couldn't see the satelite size objects in the viewfinder but recorded anyway and kept speaking so I could explain what I was seeing if the tape didn't come out. About 5 minutes later I saw another identical object come in from the south like the other did and seem to be dogfighting or just goofing around but doing loops around each other and having incredible bursts of speed. Sometimes it would go one way then the other so quick without seeming to stop. A few minutes later they started hiding in the clouds and I lost track of them.
