several dim lights streak across sky and change directions

me, my boyfriend, my best friend and her boy friend were sitting around on the trampoline when her boyfriend asked us what was in the air. he thought it might have been a plane or something, but when my friend and boyfriend looked up they were both like no. i didn'thave a glasses on at the time, so i couldn't see it. well later we decided we wanted to see what they were and i had some binoculars at home. so we went to my house and got them. when we were there, i finally got to see them. i mean they were moving at very fast rates and with the 180 degree turns they were making, i believe that no human could stand the "g" force of it!!! they were flying all around the sky and my boyfriend was watching one while i saw another like take off across the sky. they were far away, like a dim star, but we all saw several of them. we all thought we were crazy. i have never believed in ufos and thought it was a bunch of crap...but i saw it all with my own eyes...and it was a pretty display of lights they were putting on for us. but we waw a plane go by, it's lights were blinking and it was going at a steady pace and you could see the outline of the plane in the binoculars. they couldn't be space stations or comets or anything b/c they wouldn't just all of a sudden change direction like that. it was awesome! you can ask my friends at school, but i don't lie (well except to my parents...but who doesn't do that) and i know i saw them! they were going north to south and east to west! i just can't get over it! we tried to take the camera out and film it, but there was too much light when i was at my house.
