5 objects in formation, disappeared, 4 more appeared in different formation

Coming home from church meeting. Approaching State Street & Mulford. 5 Spherical shapped objects were overhead flying from Northwest to Southeast in a set formation. The objects appeared to be 1/5th the size of the nearly-full moon. Unable to estimate actual size without knowledge of altitude of objects. The formation changed from time to time. 2 of the objects seemed to nearly touch and then darted apart. Arriving home we alerted neighbors who joined to watch the 5 original objects disappear one and two at a time and then 4 new objects appeared and flew nearly the same path. These held formation closer than the first 5. Among the observers was a fireman/paramedic, an office manager, a graphic artist, a school assistant and a retired manager.
