Metallic formation above SE Portland

While driving on 99 northbound from Sellwood to Portland I witnessed a grouping of fifteen- twenty metallic objects flying in various patterns above SE metro Portland. At first I thought it was a flock of white birds or geese, but the changes in direction and the size did not seem birdlike. Also wondered if it was a grouping of balloons that " got away" from a car lot or something similar, but then I witnessed several groups break away from the main cluster, accelerate rapidly and fly against the cloud/wind direction, and then rejoin primary group and this occurred several times with different groups forming and then breaking away in different directions at different speeds before rejoining the main group. At various points the group would shift and almost disappear, but during shifts they would also deflect light giving off a metallic sheen. I cant't explain what I saw, but I pulled my car over and watched this for about 10 minutes before the objects disappeared into the clouds.

Did anyone else see this as well and if so any idea was it could have been ?
