White/metallic spheres circling each other above west Los Angeles

I watched several (about 5-8) circular or spherical objects circle each other for about one minute. I don't know how long they were there before I noticed them, but the just seemed to disappear after about a minute. I don't know what altitude they were at, but I would guess it was a few thousand feet. Because I couldn't judge their altitude, I can't estimate how big they were. I was walking north on Westwood Blvd in Westwood, CA at the time and the objects were in the sky slightly to my right, so from my perspective they were to the northeast. The sky was clear. Most of the time the objects appeared to be white, but at one point one of them seemed to reflect light and appeared shiny for a moment, hence my description as "metallic". There didn't seem to be a particular pattern in their movement, but they did circle around each other at times.
