Dancing BRIGHT BRIGHT white orbs in the night sky.

I was sitting outside having a smoke looking at the stars around 3 am. One star or what i thought was a star started to move across the sky not in a straight line just casual roaming around the sky. I was sitting there staring at it when it got big and white then in an instant there was 5-6 BRIGHT BRIGHT huge white orbs just dancing across the night sky. I freaked out and ran inside to wake up my wife and get the cameras and ran back outside to see them still dancing all over the sky. i tried to use the camera on my phone to take pics but it was to dark. so i grabbed my wifes camera smart phone and yet it was still to dark to pick them up so i grabbed my digital camera and still couldnt get them. the orbs when the moved did not streak they would be as bright as any other star then get really big bright white then vanish and reappear dance around get really bright and vanish and reappear across the sky. there was no lights on them the way they moved like danc! ing around the stars. but the weirdest thing is the amount of distance they would blink, vanish what ever you want to call it, travel across the sky and then zig zag all over the sky. My wife got to see the last two as i tried to tape it on my digital one flashed really bright white over the house then the other stayed the size of the other stars and zig zagged all over back and forth slowly working its way south, then they all just disappeared. we stood out in the yard looking at the sky for 15 more mins and they never came back. they emitted no other color but white they would start off the size of a star just zooming around the sky then they would get much much larger than any of the stars vanish and the reappear across the sky. I know it wasnt a airplane because you could see the planes flashing small tiny lights in the sky. it was almost fluid the way they moved across the sky. Im telling you they used up the whole sky zipping around oh they started from the north and ! were going south.
