Lights in the sky

Five points of light that where flying in and out of cloud cover at unbelievable angles and turns. They were flying close to each other and making moves and turns I've never seen (or thought possible) by any kind of aircraft. During accleration, they became brighter with a blue-white (exhaust-like) glow and dimmed when going slower. The speeds and angles at which these things were moving was unbelievable. They looked like dueling fireflies the way they speed and stopped and zipped around each other, almost as if they were "chasing" or performing acrobatic manuevers. At one point, two flew into the cloud and the cloud lit up like an explosion (a bit like lightning), but there was no sound, no thunder. (It is now 11:30 pm here and the objects are still visible right now)

((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the lights could have been caused by advertising lights. PD))
