2 light shapes moving in a pattern at incredible speed.

At about 22:00 on the night of 12/6/08 I was walking on the West side of Los Angeles when I saw 2 oval like light shapes in the sky first moving in a crossing pattern around each other at what appeared to be tremendous speed. Occasionally, the pattern broke off in to what appeared to be random movements and then returned to the pattern. At one point 2 additional identical light shapes appeared in the sky, joined the criss cross pattern and disappeared shortly after.

At first the lights were visible in the sky to the south and east of me, but at one point moved north and west for a brief time, continuing in the same pattern. But then returned to the south and east of me and remained there.

The sky was partly cloudy that night, and the lights stayed behind the cloud cover. So when I first saw them, I thought they might be the kind of spotlights that you see in the sky at big events. But these were different because there was no beam of light from the ground that you usually see with those. And they were moving exponentially faster than the typical spotlight in the sky display. They were also not ciruclar like the spotlights usually are. When the 2 light shapes were moving through the sky, they would occasionally change direction, appearing to basically turn on a dime at incredibly high speed.

I've never seen anything like it and am at a loss for what it could be.
