Cluster of silver orbs fading in and out of view

At approximately 3:00 P.M. on Saturday, October 12th, a cluster of spherical objects were observed in the Eastern skies of the Sunset Hills area of South St. Louis County. My boyfriend's family and I were preparing to leave a local school after a soccer game, when one of his relatives pointed out these weird balloons in the sky. As we watched closer, we noticed that unlike helium balloons, these objects were not gaining altitude. They appeared to be hovering and slightly moving southward in the sky. I would estimate that there were at least 50 small silver spherical objects.

As we stared at them, they faded in and out as if the sun was reflecting off and on. The sky was clear, so there was no obvious reason for this discrepancy in reflection. As they faded in and out, they seemed to make new formations. To me, the fading in and out was like a star that you can only see through peripheral vision, but not when looking straight at it. This incident occurred for 10 or 15 minutes. They were still in the sky as we were leaving the school. Numerous others saw the objects in the sky. One person commented that it was behaving like a school of fish in the sky.
