Well you are definetly lucky to have seen 4 objects but they all have reasonable expilnations.

The light that moved in a circular pathand which little lights could be seen from the outside probably a weather ballon caught in a large, slow moving vortex. The lights were ambient sun light from the high atmosphere that was reflecting of the mettalic balloon. I myself have worked with weather ballons and witnessed such a phenomeon. The time is also important because the sun had not fully set so light was still able to reach the balloon.

Your second observation is a little harder to place down because the description is so brief but in 1996 the pentagon annocounced a top seceret satellite program that has been taking place since the early 80s. In the program satelites would fly in formation around the sky. From the information given i would have to lean towards that explanation.

Your third encounter could any number of things, space junk, a small meteor, or even a dumbing made by an airplane in high atmosphere flight.

You did see something, you saw many rare occasions in sky observations.
