White Sphere preforms complex manoeuvre in airspace over the southern edge of the Test Site

I was riding my bike home from work, with a path that gives me an unobstructed view of the northern sky above the city. My eyes are drawn to something out of place in the sky above sheep mountain. I stare at the light for a moment, trying to tell if it is a star or not, and then it starts to "zigzag" in a diagonal direction towards the desert floor. upon completing several complete zig-zags, it shoots off and does a very hard bank upwards in a vector seemingly aimed at a point very high in altitude above the test site. This is the first "white dot/sphere" I've seen above this area of town.

It was difficult to tell the distance this object was away from me, but I would guess it was over the very forward edge of the restricted airspace in front of the Nevada Test Site and the other military instillations located behind Sheep Mountain Also, immediately after the light disappeared, I noticed two (airforce?) planes with very powerful strobes fly along sheep mountain towards Nellis Airforce Base.
