In the sky, a dense yellow ball appeared and disappeared multiple times and suddenly turned into a triangle of 8 of these yellow balls

I was looking for a place to rent during my semester at college. As soon as I was done looking at this house, I got back in my car with my girlfriend and after sitting there for a just a minute not even leaving the house yet, I saw clearly in front of me in the the sky, (South of the football field) a bright dense yellow ball. It was floating around 20 storys high. It was there for a few seconds and then disappeared. It reappeared a few seconds later, close to where it was just at. It repeated this creating a zig zag type movement in the sky. It did this 5 times lasting 10 seconds total but the sixth time it reappeared it had 4 lights sequentially appear on each side of it creating a V shape of 9 similar balls/circles of this very dense yellow light. It then sequentially disappeared each light on each end almost immediately after it just appeared in the V shape. It did not appear again. After 25 seconds or so of looking I saw a faint blue light deep into the sky and instantly saw 2 jets fly over head. I tried following but my girlfriend was freaking out during the entire encounter and did not want me to continue following. It was an incredible moment for me to watch and no one can ever imagine how insane it was. The yellow light did not create a dim or haze around it it was so dense and perfectly
cut out circles, it looked unreal.
