High and fast flying craft over LA, CA doing formations and STOPPING. If Military, why maneuveurs over LA?

Clear, light blue skies, well lit still by sun, half-full moon in the sky over Hollywood / Los Angeles area. My brother and I were sitting outside enjoying the evening. Told him to check out the star and moon (which were right next to each other, the star was JUST outside the crescent, as if cradled) and he said "that can't be a star, it must be a planet, it's so light out." Then it started moving, we said, "Oh, it's a plane". But then when it came to a complete halt, we said, "um. ok. do helicopters fly that high?". Then we noticed another one going perpindicular, which seemed to appear out of nowhere (our eyes were PRETTY focused on the clear section of sky in our view). Then we called our friends over who were setting up a tent in the backyard and we all watched for a while. We then saw three more of them appear and fly in a standard V formation and then re-form at LIGHTNING speed (very very high up) into a few other odd formations and then dissapear. These thing came into and out of view in a split second. My friend checked them out with his binocolurs and said it appeared "round" with lights front and back. Ok, i know, sounds like classic b.s. Well, if they're planes, what in the flying hell are they doing such incredible stunts right over central Los Angeles for? I tried to reach the FAA and Homeland Security at LAX and got an answering machine! Lovely! I spoke with someone (in the flurry of numbers i called) at a local airforce command station who said they had no flying going on in the area at the moment and ref'd me here! Nice one guys. Gathering enemy threat in the skies? Cool, ref it over to UFOCentral! Jesus. Not putting this site down, it's just that i'd expect a little more from their response, let alone the FAA and Homeland Security. After around 25 minutes more they were all gone. They did not fly off north or south or east or west, they just vanished.

I took pics but no luck, took video and got some of it - you can check it out here, but if i get too many downloads, i'll have to cut it. I hope that someone will archive it and post it elsewhere if it's of use. When you watch the clip, at 4 seconds into it you'll see a white dot in the top left quarter of the screen (you'll see the unfocused power lines running diagonally, follow the wires to find the white dot). You'll see it, over the span of one second of film, it moves to the left across the power lines farther left and upwards. (I'm not saying the craft moved that fast, it was my camera motion that moved quickly). Anyway, admittadly, the film proves nada, only that we thought we were seeing some very very wacky stuff that none of us (4 of us in our thirties and 2 children) can explain. Here's the link: This is the south western sky, all took place in the vicinity of where the moon was in the sky, seen from Santa Monica and Vine St area.
