3 circular metallic objects flying east to west in a traingular formation over central orange county, followed by another object

I was taking my last work break at around 3:00 pm and I had gone up to the upper level of our parking structure, and as I stood there looking northward at the Orange County Skyline, I saw some movement far in the Distance. That is when I saw 3 Small, Metallic looking Circular Objects flying in a triangular formation, Flying from East to West at a high rate of speed. It almost looked like they were flying on a straight line from the Mountains East of the city of Orange, toward Long Beach and The Ocean. After I lost them in the Horizon to the east, I thought that was the last of it, but two minutes later, another object appeared in front of me, also moving fast on an East-West direction, as if trying to catch the other 3, except that this object seemed to bounce up and down as it flew westward.

At about the time the 3 objects flew by, but before the last one passed, a helicopter happened to fly by right over my head, at a fairly high altitude, that's when I realized that I could hear the copter's engine noise, but the 3 objects did not.

I can't be sure if they were man made or not, but even at the distance and altitude that they flew, they were visible enough to have seen wether they had wings or propellers, and I did not see either.

If they were made by the military, all I can think is that they might have been Jet powered Drones, or they must have been testing missiles near our area.

This is not the first time I've seen strange objects in the sky.

Last January I also saw an object hovering over Santa Ana, And I happen to know that someone else saw that object as well. So now every time I go out on my breaks, I am more attentive of whats above me, and it seems to be paying off.
