Large Object? emitting round, fast moving white lights close to ground, no sound, low cloud obstructing view of actual source of lights

At the time we had pet rabbits, every evening we would bring them inside from our back yard. On this one night it was overcast with very low cloud. Above the paper road behind our property something was above the cloud and all we could see were alot of large round white lights moving rapidly (I would like to say rotating but the movement was not that simple) and shining down through the cloud. The object seemed to be round although all that was visible were the numerous lights. I looked to see if the lights could be coming from anywhere land based but this was not possible. This is a small city and not the type of city to have light shows.

Also the main residential areas are a long way from the airport. It could not have been a plane or helicopter because there was no sound.

I was pretty frightened and rushed back inside with pets, I said to my partner : "what was that?" I do not remember his answer and he never mentions it which I find very annoying.

I felt shock at the time and did not consider going out again with a camera or video. I was glad to be back inside the house.

It is unfortunate that I did not make a greater effort at the time to record the date/time of this event or even report it.

I have not had a similar experience prior to this or since. I would really like to know what it was that I saw, many reportings of ufos or lights are different in that objects are moving, lights are different colours, objects are not circular etc.
