Balls of lights dancing in the clouds.

My daughter age 29, and myself age 58, went outside for a smoke. It was night time and our attention was drawn to lights moving around in the clouds overhead. There were three lights, all of circular shape, having a blueish-white color and being somewhat brighter in the center. At first we only noticed two lights and thought they must be search lights because the lights appeared to be going in circles. But then as the clouds, which were closely bunched together and overlapping each other, started to seperate, the pattern of the lights movements changed and that's when we noticed a third light. We then realized the lights didn't have a particular pattern. Their movement went according to the shape of the cloud it was in. If the cloud had a tail the light moved out to the tip, then retraced it's path, then moved along the outside parimeter of the cloud. All three lights were doing the same thing with the cloud it was in. They were following the outside parimeter of the clouds no matter what shape the cloud changed into. Then the lights started to jump from cloud to cloud. Two lights didn't remain in the same cloud at the same time though. One would immediately jump to another cloud when another light came into it's cloud. It was so awesome to watch this. My daughter and I couldn't believe what we were seeing. It was like each light was a ball of electricity moving around in the cloud. But there was no lightening, no thunder, no dark clouds, no storm at all. The clouds started to loose their density and their individual shapes. The clouds were thinning out and started to join together into one ball of mist when we noticed the lights were starting to run into each but would bounce off in opposite directions as soon as they touched. It was like they were magnets with the polarities repelling each other. We have no idea what we were watching but we were both very disappointed when the lights stopped. They didn't fly off they were just gone as the clouds became too misty. I! t was li ke someone just flicked the light switch off.
