3 objects hanging above St. George

Noticed a slow moving object above St. George. I was on the south end of town and watched the object move south above the town, then it turned west once it passed the airport (heading for Santa Clara) and slowly gained altitude until it was no longer visible. The entire event took about 20 minutes. There were 3 objects which all seemed to be attached to each other vertically. At first I thought it was a helicopter with fire buckets, or someone on a parachute. The topmost was a white sphere; the bottom object was dark and triangular. It had no lights and made no sound. As soon as I lost sight of the object, I saw a helicopter which circled the airport in the opposite pattern of the 3 objects, then headed in the same general direction. The noise from the helicopter was very noticeable and it flew much faster than the previous object.
