Circular lights seen in Bass River State Forest above Lake Absegami NJ

As we (my wife, kids and I) were heading back to our campsite we saw a ring of lights (10-12) in a circle, low flying above the lake. We saw this in an opening in the trees for about 5 seconds. I think I saw a small light next to it but it may have been a star. I stopped my truck as we both said what the - is that? As I stopped my truck we lost it through the trees. I backed up but we could not locate it again. We both looked at each other and my wife said lets go to the trailer. I backed up further (much further than original sighting) but could not locate the lights. I decided to go to the RV. I put the kids in the trailer and my wife went in to eat (we went out for food). I stood outside and looked for the lights. I felt strange, like I was sure I saw a ufo but like I didn't care enough to keep looking or something. I heard and saw the ligths of several jets, the blinking lights of the jets illuminated the trees. I'm sure they were jets and not large aircraft. I went in the trailer and ate. We heard more, or the same jets again and I said to my wife 'more jets'.

My wife seemed uncomfortable with what she saw and didn't say anything. Before seeing this we had heard several loud (strange) noises in the woods that sounded like an extremly large jackhammer. They were brief, but loud and powerful, I've never heard anything like them. I don't know if they were related but we did not hear the noises again after the sighting and we heard it at least 10 times between Friday night and Saturday before the sighting.
