Morphing Chromatic Craft with Chaser

In the sky above our house on a clear day I spotted an object that was bright with chrome reflection. The object seemed to be about anywhere from 2000 to 5000 feet high. There where no clouds in the sky to guage height. There were no other aircraft in the sky to guage scale. My wife noticed it as well, and she agreed to keep an eye on it as I ran in the house and got my camera. I shot several images of the craft. In the max zoom of my telephoto lens (70 to 210) the object appeared to be a series of chrome spheres that seemed to be constantly moving and changing shape. Several times the objects formed a verticle "V" shape. The "V" shape was made twice in a very short time of say 3 seconds. I have photos of this, (as negatives as I haven't developed the images yet.) The group of orbs totaled 7 objects in all. They approached our house from the west and then began to travel south once they where over our house. Soon another sigular orb apeared from the north and started to follow the grouped orbs south. The group of orbs picked up speed slightly, and were soon covered from view by trees. Sight was lost on the sigular orb after the group moved south. The group continued to change shape the entire sighting.

I reported this with the understanding that I may be reporting a few Mylar baloons that got loose from somewhere. I have access to Mylar baloons at the car lot I work at but, I have never seen them behave in the manner I have described.

I will update this story after I have the photos developed. I have included an illustration for reference.
