4 object in daylight

I walked out of a store on Randall road in Batavia, IL. I saw 3 objets flying in a circle. My first reaction was to think they were birds. I quickly realized that was not the case. They were much too high to be birds and at that altitude, birds could not be seen. They were moving in a counter-clockwise rotation in a circle and silver in color. Their path was not perfect or even eliptical. They moved in an erratic motion going closer and farther from the center of the circle. One moved away from the rest to the West and then disappeared. The second one did the same. The third one moved in the same direction, but went much slower and slowly faded out. About 30 second later another object appeared to be the size of the first 3 put together. It was silver at the top and went to bronze at the bottom. It stayed stationary for 30 seconds and then went straight up at a high rate of speed and disappeared. We did notice military jet in the area. I couldn't tell what they were doing.
