seen one metalic orb then seen 15-20 orbs

Around two thirty in the afternoon I was sitting on my deck reading a book. I looked up into the eastern sky and I seen a metallic orb traveling south. I had a pair of binoculars with me and took a look. What I saw was a round metallic orb moving slowly towards the south. I kept looking at it through the binoculars until I lost sight of it. My girlfriend happen to come out at that time and also seen it. We weren’t sure if it was a balloon.

I continued to read my book when ten minutes later I saw another orb from the east traveling towards the south again. I grabbed my binoculars and observed it. What I saw was the exact same thing I saw the first time. It was a shiny metallic orb moving slowly towards the south. I observed it again until I lost sight of it. I was getting excited so I just began to scan the sky.

Ten to fifteen minutes later another orb appeared from no where in the eastern sky and traveled south. It followed the exact same route as the first two. I followed this one with the binoculars as well but what I seen next I will never forget. What I saw was 15-20 metallic orbs stationed in the southern skies. I thought I saw a couple of black orbs as well. They all held their position and resembled star constellations only this was in broad daylight. My girlfriend was present at the time and seen them with the naked eye and did not need binoculars. It was an incredible sight and I watched them until I lost sight of them.

After that incredible event I was watching the eastern sky looking for another orb. Maybe twenty minutes later I saw one final orb traveling the same route as the other three from east to south. My girlfriend and I will never forget this day.
