UFO's manuever over Orlando, Florida

The objects that we saw were about 10 - 15 miles away from our vantage point and looked to be about 8,000ft - 15,000ft above ground level. We only saw the objects as lights or spheres of light from this distance. There were approximately 2 objects, one was stationary and the other manuevered around in a manner which was uncharacteristic of any conventional craft that I know of. It performed tight circles and moved very fast as compared to the commercial traffic in the area, which I used as a comparison. The most dramatic manuever it performed was a tight loop which only took a fraction of a second, then it shot out a thin beam of light to the other object and it seemed to ride that beam up to that object. The light that eminated from the objects was blueish white in color and seemed to flash at different intervals depending on the objects manuevers. These objects were witnessed by myself my wife and two other vehicles that had pulled off to the side of HWY 429 to watch. I am a private business owner with 2 years of aeronautical science course work completed while I was an undergraduate student at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida. Additionally I called Orlando International Airport Tower on the day after the incident to inquire as to if they had observed theoccurance, instead of getting an answer I was given a number to call in Washington, DC to report/inquire about the incident.
