8 objects flying in a figure 8 a very high altitude..

As I took a break from my motorcycle ride, my eyes went skyward and I noticed what I thought were birds at a very high altitude most people would have not been able to see them (I have excellent vision). I kept watching the (birds) because they were acting so peculiar. They were circling around and around and interweaveing in a strange kind of pattern (like a figure 8) I thought, how odd to use up all that energy for no apparent reason...Then it occured to me that they might not be birds at all..That's when I noticed one (bird) sat still in the sky while the others kept flying in a way a bird could or would do that....I had to look away for a few seconds to rest my eyes (as much as I wanted to keep watching in amazement) I just could'nt, my eyes were getting tired...When I looked back to the location...They were gone!...Not one object left to be seen..I looked and kept looking and all...If it was a flock of birds I would have seen them trailing off..There wasn't a cloud in the sky...I wondered what they could have been circling above...I know it was for a reason..But what?
