The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

In addition to each ball moving in a straight line, there's another interesting mathematical relationship in there.
A pair of balls on opposite sides correlate to sin and cos, where the two balls travel orthogonally to each other (that's 90 degrees to normal folks). When one ball is at the center (0,0) the opposite ball is at the max, either (1,0) or (-1,0), and vice versa, thus if one ball represents the sine, then the other ball is the cosine, or vice versa, depending on which side of the railroad tracks you were born.
As demonstrated by this animation:
Of course all that is already obvious to anyone familiar with the theory behind the Fourier Transform. I am, of course, referring to Euler's Formula.
And then substitute Euler's Formula:
