three white circular objects in formation

On the afternoon of Labor Day, at around 3 or 4 in the afternoon, September 3, 2007, I was in the back yard of my parents’ home in North St. Paul, Minnesota. There was a clear blue sky overhead. Suddenly, my mother said, “Look, there’s some hot air balloons.” I looked but couldn’t see anything. Then my brother said, “Oh, I see. But they can’t be hot air balloons—they’re too high up.” He said he saw three white objects in formation.

After looking for some time, I could finally make out one of the objects. The other two, said my brother, were hidden by a tree branch. I saw a tiny white speck in the sky. We talked for a while about what we saw and thought they might be weather balloons. But they were so high up, if they were weather balloons, they would be invisible at that height. And why would three weather balloons fly in formation? We made some jokes about UFO’s and went back to eating our dinner. The sighting lasted approximately ten minutes.
