triangular object(s) coasted through Oregon and Washington.

I was on my back deck with my 2 daughters in Hillsboro, Oregon when I viewed what looked like a bundle of balloons floating from the Southeast sky. I told my daughters and wife to come look at the large balloons floating away. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that they didn't look like balloons but rather a bright triangular shaped object with rounded areas on each angle rotating on an axis. I watched the object for half an hour before it was out of my view. The course it took was from my East to what appeared to be above the oregon coast at West where it separated into 2 objects and then the 2 objects turned North then Northeast and kept getting a little higher and farther as they disappeared from my view probably above central Washington state.
