strange looking metalic objects above yakima wa, spinning, then split up into different directions. big lower foating object vanished

Between the times of 3:40 pm to 4:20 pm, i was driving east on Nob Hill blvd in Yakima, Wa. that runs close by my home, i was stoped at an intersection that runs thru a college area, first one at the intersection in the inside lane, i leaned forward and looked up at these metalic looking objects, possibly party ballons. Im estimating the distance from my location to be around two to three miles. It looked like they came from the area of Wapato, Wa. It looked like they twsiting and wobbeling.

They were scattered horizontally behind the light signals, it looked like they were above Union Gap, Wa. a suburb of Yakima city. It looked like there was four but i could be wrong, one or two of them were fading in and out like mirrors twisting. The light turned green and i proceeded east on Nob Hill blvd until i got to the college parking lot areas turned off in a north direction and stoped, got out of my vehicle, looked up and then noticed there were more above.

I then got on to stewart, it is the first street that runs along side Nob Hill blvd on the north side it. I then went to my place which isnt very far from both those locations, after parking i got out then looked straight up, i then seen something that was much bigger and non metalic. It was odd shaped, looked sort of like a bunch of objects connected in a mass.

I hurried into my place and found one of my sets of binoculars, by the time i got side and back to that same location, i couldnt find it, so im thinking it was lower then i thought i seen. There are trees in this area all over, its hard to say what it did. I then looked for the other ones that i had seen before, on my way home. I did observe two of these metalic ones, to the north. They were very far away, and it looked like they were changing there direction back to the east, towards Selah, Wa. which is another suburb of Yakima, Wa.

After several minutes of trying to identify these, they just disappeared, it was like they had split up and went up higher in oposite directions. The lower bigger one that was non metalic, im not sure where that one went. I was wearing sun glasses, up until that last few minutes, then i couldnt see them anymore. It seemed like these sun glasses helped me to see them better then with the naked eye.

This could have something to do with the light spectrum, it seemed like they were more shiny with the sun glasses on, when i took them off and looked i found it harder to respot them. This could be a hoax, even thou the lower jet stream usually goes in the opposite direction. One of these looked like it could have been a transparent weather ballon with an instrument hanging under it, another one almost looked like it was a parachute out of control.

Three of these objects i cant explain, the big one disappeared, the other two that were metalic, they looked like smaller connected clusters making it look like one object. There could have been as much as six or seven objects, all doing different things. Its hard to say exactly what the sizes of these things where, i was able to spot them better, then a jet liner. I dont want to be contacted, i know you can find out who i am. Everything that i witnessed and reported about today is true and correct to the best of my ability.
