Saw pulsing orb in sky followed by plasma/fireballs above my street

I went out to the front of my residence for a smoke. Was enjoying that first breath of what felt like fall and noticed that the night sky was clear the way it is during autumn. I noticed a spherical object moving across the night sky. At first I figured, "Oh its one of those star-link satellites...I haven't seen one of those in a while." So I preceded to observe it. Then I noticed it wasn't moving in a straight path. It was moving in a wavy type path. I thought, "man it would sure be nice if it got a little brighter," as it would be easier to see (it looked like a moving star). As soon as that thought entered my mind, it began to pulse. It would brighten up and then dim.

Then something drew my attention away from the sky. I turned to look behind me and all of a sudden a series of colorful plasma type orbs phased in about 40 yards away from me. There was one large one followed by two more that were slightly smaller. They were completely silent and then emitted this rainbow like color with a light purple aura. They traveled completely straight for about 3 seconds and then faded out and disappeared. Several nearby dogs began howling and barking as soon as the plasma orbs faded out.

The whole thing happened too fast for me to whip out my phone and start snapping photos. I was AWESTRUCK. The craft in the sky was definitely in space or upper atmosphere while the plasma orbs were no higher than the neighbors cherry tree and no larger than an orange or small melon.

Ten minutes after this happened, I saw 2 black helicopters flying low over a nearby neighborhood. They looked like black hawk helicopters. It was night so I can't be certain, but by their size and shape, they were definitely military. These helicopters were flying in circles around my neighborhood and other nearby neighborhoods. There were also a couple aircraft flying above my area doing laps. I live near a local commercial airport so the air traffic control tower could have had them flying in a holding pattern. Still, it seemed like a strange coincidence that military helicopters, that never fly around here, all of a sudden show up and start circling around the area after this happened.
