Silver Torpedo craft with two smaller silver spherical objects circling around the mid section of longer craft

On a Sunday afternoon in August 1967.I remember returning home, after camp with Cubs-at age 8.I was outside my home on that hot day in the mid afternoon.My next door neighbor [old man] came out and told me.That he heard on the radio.A satellite was crossing over above the city.I did not really take notice to care.As I was bored ,while sitting out in the front of my house alone wondering what to do.About 10-15 minutes later,my neighbor came out his door screaming and pointing up ^ ,, there it is ! .I looked up and in description with a good memory that I have.I can indicate what was in fact witnessed with my eyes to you.I watched a long silver object like a torpedo.Along with one or two smaller round spherical objects circling around the longer one in the mid section.These objects were moving across the sky from west to east in a straight line flightpath-Approx 30-50,000 feet or higher.It was just north of our position,as they moved across.At the speed like a high flying jet.The conditions of the sky was very clear with high temperatures.I watched the objects move across for about a couple minutes or so,until they crossed to the east. I then just gave up looking and thought in my mind- WOW ! I just witnessed a satellite and oddly enough.I never really told anyone at the time what I had witnessed.Thinking it was a common thing to view at age 8,like watching a jet.Today ,now age 50 and more knowledgable on subject.It appears in character,that it was not a satellite.I understand today, there was a UFO flap in Canada -1967.ie Shag Harbour Crash
