3-4 crazy star-like objects moving at very high speeds and direction change. defies convention. I saw over D.C!

Myself and two friends were visiting a friend in D.c. on Halloween night. 3 of us went to the new world war 2 memorial. This memorial is a man-made island, located in the heart of the city, to the west of the washington monument-- which you can see in the reflection of the pond surrounding the memorial. All of us were smoking cigarettes and looking up at the stars, which were fairly prevelant this night, though there was some cloud coverage. One friend spotted what seemed to be a star, moving about at an insane speed, in no one particular direction or course. Two to three more objects that also looked like stars appeared in the sky with the first object. The objects now, which were a light white, close to the color of any random star, looked like they were playing almost, looping around one another, and changing direction and speed in ways we believed to be completely impossible for any craft of our knowledge. The objects would hover and accelerate and take up so much distace in the sky in an instant. These objects also moved backwards, and there was certainly no turing radius either, they stopped on a dime, and flew backwards and loopty looped and the crafts chased one another in these formations and in a figure eight sort of design. They then dissapeared behind very high clouds. All the objects were fairly dim, and very far away, and it would have been extremely hard to catch this event if you weren't directly watching the sky, as we were. We are 100 percent sure of what we saw and i know there are reports similar to ours that also occured over washington. Please do not allow this siting to be dismissed. We are intelectual individuals ranging in age from 17-20.
