Three spheres flying high on the skies of Phoenix, Arizona

After buying some refreshments for lunch, my wife, daughter and I decided to go to the park to have a family time under the shades of the trees. We took a blanket with us to spread it on the grass. There was a lot of people at the park, and we opted for a tree apart from the rest of the people.

After having lunch we laid on the blanket facing the blue clear sky. I started scanning the sky for airplanes, and I noticed a small sphere way up there, too high, for a minute I thought it was a balloon; however, as I saw airplanes flying by, I noticed that the sphere was much higher than the airplanes. The size of the airplanes was tiny, and I could still see the sphere, so it could not be a balloon.

The sphere was stationary for a minute then it started moving slowly North in a straight line, I told my wife about it and she was able to see it too... she said "The air up there is dragging the balloon"; however, after several seconds, the sphere reversed direction, now going South slowly. I told her about it and she said "Well the air changed course up there".

As I kept looking the sphere going South, I noticed another sphere positioned much higher, my wife wasn't able to see it. And I started to get excited, "Those are not balloons I told her".

The sphere going south reversed direction again, and this time it moved faster Northbound, as it was moving I look farther ahead of it and I could see another sphere at the same speed ahead of the firt one and I lost them in a couple of seconds.

I turn my eyes back looking for the sphere that I had noticed on a higher altitude, and I noticed that the sphere had come down because I could see it better. My wife was able to see it too.

I grabbed my digital camera and took a picture, when I moved the camera away the sphere was gone, when I got home and downloaded the picture, I only could see the blue sky.
