Lights in the sky over Curacao

The 4 of us were on vacation this last week in Curacao, a Carribean island approx. 50+ miles off the coast of Venezuela. We were staying on the east/south east side of the island. Sitting on the beach at about 10-10:30 pm we all four noticed what we thought were 2 falling stars traveling downward from north-west to east-south-east at approximately a 50-60 degree angle. We watched these white stars/lights fall for several (5-8)seconds, long enough for everyone to comment how cool it was to see 2 falling stars at the same time traveling parrell to one another. Then, faster than I have ever seen any object in the sky move before, these 2 light-objects simultaneously changed direction and headed upward (south) at approximately a 120+ degree angle, "bowed-out" away from each other then joined back parallell to each other, then in what was literally a blink of an eye the lower-left object shot outward (east) at an approximate 95-110 degree angle away from the 2nd object, then both objects were gone. As the four of us were discussing what we'd just witnessed and debating what the objects could have been, a single light came out of the sky from the south heading northward and shot across the sky in a waivering-undulating pattern.

I am a 44 y/o man who works for a major telecommunications corportation as a Corporate Account Manager, my wife is 43 y/o and works in accounting for a fortune 500 company, my best friend is a 38 y/o professional real-estate agent and his wife is a 44 y/o registered nurse. None of us has ever witnessed anything like this before in our lives or know of anyone else who has. We all agree that these lights/objects traveled and moved at speeds, patterns, and angles much differently from anything we have ever seen before.
