round orbs in the middle of the day

Was walking back into my building from taking trash out and was standing in the middle of a large empty parking lot and stopped for a min. to stretch my leggs and enjoy the warm summer afternoon. As i stood there looking straight up in the sky something strange caught my eye. Thru the slight haze, a small whiteish looking object of some kind caught my eye. At first i thought it might be some kind of gull that one often sees around a land fills. as i strained to identify the object i noticed several more, flying in circles around the first. The more intensely i stared, the more orbs i noticed. The harder i tryed to identify what they were the more i counted. the origional one flew in a straight line with the others circleing around the first. It almost appeared as though they were"playing". i looked away on several occasions and looked back to see if i was just imagining this and i was able to located the group of "orbs" each time. to my utter amazement I continued to watch for several mins. until my neck began to ache from looking straight up. I looked away a last time and was never able to locate them again. I have no idea what they were. I know the were not birds, ballons or planes. They appeared to be round, dull (not shiney or reflective) metalic looking objects that were flying under the control of someone or something. Due to the elevation and haze i cannot tell you how big or small they were. The sighting last only a couple of mins. but the memory will last forever.
