saw 4 lights going in what i thought was a clover formation

i went out to my car to start it up because it was cold that night and i thought id have trouble getting it started. i thought the lights in the sky were helicopters because there was either police or firetruck sirens going down academy. it was also cloudy night. i just looked up to see if i could figure what i thought was a helicopter and where it might be going(what direction it was heading). at first all i saw was 3 lights, but then i saw the forth. the lights were going in a clover or spiral type formation. i am not to sure though. all the lights met in one spot and seemed to be going the same speed(thats why i thought it might be going in some sort of clover formation).i was on the road village lane. i watched it and the last i saw of it there all four lights met at one spot and shot up above the clouds. i went on to work. when i got to work i just looked up again to make sure it was gone. it was not it has just gone higher up. i watched it for a while and went in. the last i saw it was around 10pm because i has just clocked in and it was time to work. you had to be looking for it to see it from the parking lot though because of all the lights in town.
