dull orange group of craft maneuvering and rotating arround each other in the sky over reno

I was stopped at a traffic light. My freind was telling a story of no real interest to me. I looked up and saw what looked to me like a plane moving above without its lights on, just visible from what I thought was the reflected lights of reno on the bottom of it. It had the same color of the bottom of a cloud that has city lights reflecting on it. There were a few points of this dull orange glow that I thought were the wings and fuselage and other parts of a plane, in that they were moving along together. It was not bright and nothing especially wierd about it. I had time to think " Why is that plane flying without its lights on" I think I said that interupting my friend, but as he continued his story, the individual points of dull orange split apart and seemed to orbit each other, swirling in a sort of pulsating sphere and then shoot of in all different directions. I imediately had a wierd felling because the motion was so synchronized and so amazing I felt like it was obviously a product of some superior intelligence. My friend thought I was joking. The light had changed but there was no one behind me so I stopped for a minute and looked to see if maybe something was reflecting on my wind shield (with so many lights in reno) but I didn't see anything and the objects were completely gone. There was no contact of any kind with little green men so I've just kind of told this story to people that were interested in this sort of thing but I can't describe accurately to people why the movements seemed so incredible to me. The integrated maneuvers these things pulled off in a span of a few seconds were obviousely not done by some kind of normal aircraft. Since that time I have heard so many different accounts of these formations of objects that I figured it happens fairly often but I would like to see if anyone else had seen something arround that same period in that area ( I dont remember the exact date)
